I dont know of "Cisco ==>certified" memory dealers, but just buying decent RAM from any good vender ==>should be fine. "Decent RAM" does *not* cut it--you need *good* RAM from a good vendor. Be aware that this recommendation is not complete without the caveat that Cisco will not support your processor card if you stick unapproved third-party RAM in it. It's very important to use QUALITY memory in the box. With that said, Cisco does have an AVL (authorized vendor list) for third-party memory. Kingston carries this, and will even cross-ref the Cisco part numbers for you. /cah
