        two 4KiB chips, a hardware toggle switch must be utilized.
      - These two sockets can be reconfigured to support standard 400/800 OS
        chips or direct replacements.  A hardware toggle switch is then used
        to select between the two OS versions installed on the Ramrod.

  optionally also shipped with 8KiB EPROM (two 4KiB chips)
- Other early units shipped with Omnimon! by CDY Consulting and 4KiB RAM, and
