    Important notes:

    Do NOT put an SLB memory card into the bottom portion of the card cage.
    The voltages are different down there, and you could fry the board.

Make that: You **WILL** fry the board.  A *MAJOR* meltdown of one corner
of the board will occur if plugged into a lower paddle slot due to
different voltages on the power supply pins.

Boards treated this way are not repairable and can be inserted into the
nearest circular file bin ;-)
