The KT266 chipset uses two separate address and command generators Maa and Mab that are usually split over 3 DIMM slots in a 1+2 ratio. There can be problems if you use the two slots that are mapped to the same control unit but if you stick with two slots that are each mapped to one unit, then there are no problems.
The problems you are referring to are usually caused by an incorrect setting of "the typical role of this machine" as "desktop computer" rather than "server" which causes problems with the VFAT addressing, specifically, PathCache, which specifies the size of the cache that VFAT can use to save the locations of the most recently accessed directory paths. This cache improves performance by reducing the number of times the file system must seek paths by seraching the file allocation table. The number of paths is 32 for the Desktop computer profile, 16 for Mobile Or Docking System, and 64 for Network Server.
NameCache, which stores the locations of the most recently accessed filenames. The combined use of PathCache and NameCache means that VFAT never searches the disk for the location of cached filenames. Both PathCache and NameCache use memory out of the general system heap. The number of filenames is about 677 names (8KB) for the Desktop computer profile, 337 names (4KB) for Mobile Or Docking System, and 2729 names (16KB) for Network Server.
