It should work if you only use two memory modules (max).

If you need more than two modules, you need registered memory (for all
modules).   Apparently the chipset can't drive more than two unregistered
blocks.

However, on the Tiger here I couldn't use two unregistered modules at all.  The
board made some sequence of "beeps" at power-on, wouldn't even POST.  Using
registered modules instead solved the problem.  (Mmmmm.... 2x2785 BogoMIPS)

Mine didn't blow up. But that's hardly proof that it can't happen,
so let us know if yours blow up    8)
