That's a tough request...  by the time memory controllers could handle
high-density ram (pretty much all 512Mb sticks are HD), common
motherboards were only shipping with 2 slots.  You need to be looking
for something server-class from the SDRAM years in order to find a
board that can handle 4x 512Mb DIMMs.

That said, I'm sure there's a board somewhere...  they're just not too common.

I have a couple of pentium boards (i430TX based) that are really nice,
with Pentium 200 w/MMx, and they take up to 128Mb DIMMs ;)  Free to
anyone interested.
