512M.  It's a *very* old KT6V based board, and when we tried to expand
it several years back, it went bat-guano with any more than half a gig.

Well, the upstream cause was a 7 year old Antec power supply that
finally died, about a month ago, slowly.

I don't have mcelog on, and no, the memory isn't registered, but a
4-pass run of Memtest+ came up clean, so I'm speculating that the
*continuing* problem isn't hardware; I'm pretty sure it was just the
failing 12V rail on the dying PS.  I just have to clean up after it
enough to get *one* of these 2 drives cleaned off, then I can make a 
new FS, and play musical files.

Or, I may just go grab a 3TB external after all.  :-)
