Having the "Cisco" name on it and it working in Cisco equipment is a
different story.  Altough, we found out the hard way that RSP4 memory does
NOT work in an RSP8.  It'll boot on it but DON'T try to make it do
anything after-the-fact.

That said, you can get RAM for "cisco" products at many multiples less
than Cisco wants to charge for it.
