	What system are you running.  Given this is a IIsi I assume
7.0.  You will want to make sure that you run system updater version
1.1.1  (This is can be found at anonymous ftp site
	We have a IIci and had memory problems.  I haven't noticed
any problems (or many complaints from others) since I ran this updater.
We run 7.0 updater version 1.1.1 on the IIci with Mma 2.0.

Hope this helps
