I never had more mother board memory. I bought the machine as a 
Kinetic RiscPC 300MHz with 66MB RAM of which 64MB was on the Kinetic 
card. I replaced that with 128MB.

I'm a bit reluctant to disturb the Kinetic card because I had a lot of 
problems with bad contacts after upgrading it and it seems to have 
settled down now. At least it's not suddenly crashing and refusing to 
boot until I wiggle the boards around. I haven't replaced the back 
pins yet - that would be tempting providence!
