If you add a RAM chip in between, I don't know if that one becomes 0.04 and 0.05 and 'pushes' the HP-IL port numbers up, or if it gets added as 0.06, but SHOW PORT should tell you this.

Ok, so that answers that; I wasn't sure if the MB and IL ports are pushed up or retained during config. Thanks for clarifying that.
