For the rapid reply to the esoteric question!

The Fix was that the SS10 needs to have one simm in the rear most
I had on in the fore most slot and one in the middle.
Moving one simm to the rear solved the msgbuf error.

original question:

>> Hello all,

>> "Can't deduct msgbuf from physical memory list
>> Program Terminated"
>> the boot process then grinds to a halt.
>> I tried the test memory, and test /memory,

>> I've reseated all the cables and cards internally,

>> Any help would be Very Much Appreciated!
