Sorry for not responding back in Jan.  I have a hard time recommending
the 29320/39320 cards because of the long history they have with
incompatibilities with certain U320 drives.  I don't think that the
driver will be affected by memory size, but I haven't run it in several
years, and it could have rotted like ahc apparently did (though I still
have a hard time imagining how the rot could have taken place, hardly
anything has changed in the driver over the years).
