Mainboard Features
At the heart of the SuperServer 6012P-6 lies the P4DPR-6GM+, a dual Intel Xeon
processor motherboard designed to provide maximum performance. Below
are the main features of the P4DPR-6GM+.
Chipset
The P4DPR-6GM+ is based on Intel's E7500 chipset, which is a high-performance core logic chipset designed for dual-processor servers (See Figure 1-1).
The E7500 chipset consists of four major components: the Memory Controller
Hub (MCH), the I/O Controller Hub 3 (ICH3), the PCI-X 64-bit Hub 2.0 (P64H2) and
the 82808AA Host Channel Adapter (VxB).
The MCH has four hub interfaces, one to communicate with the ICH3 and three
for high-speed I/O communications. The MCH employs a 144-bit wide memory
bus for a PC1600 (DDR-200) memory interface, which provides a total bandwidth
of 3.2 GB/s. The ICH3 interface is a 266 MB/sec point-to-point connection using
an 8-bit wide, 66 MHz base clock at a 4x data transfer rate. The P64H2 interface
is a 1 GB/s point-to-point connection using a 16-bit wide, 66 MHz base clock at
a 8x data transfer rate.
The ICH3 I/O Controller Hub provides various integrated functions, including a
two-channel UDMA100 bus master IDE controller, USB host controllers, an integrated LAN controller, a System Management Bus controller and an
AC'97 compliant interface.
The P64H2 PCI-X Hub provides a 16-bit connection to the MCH for highperformance IO capability and the 64-bit PCI-X interface.

Onboard SCSI is provided with an Adaptec AIC-7899W SCSI controller chip,
which supports dual channel, Ultra160 SCSI at a burst throughput rate of
160 MB/sec. The P4DPR-6GM+ provides two SCSI ports. A QLogic GEM318
controller is used for the SAF-TE compliant SCSI backpanel.
PCI Expansion Slots
The P4DPR-6GM+ has one 64-bit, 133 MHz PCI-X slot and one 64-bit, 66 MHz
PCI slot. A "butterfly" riser card is included with the server. This riser card fits
into the 133 MHz PCI-X slot and was designed specially for the SC812S
chassis to support the use of one standard PCI card and one low profile
(half-height, half-length) PCI card. Several jumpers on the motherboard are
used to change the speeds of these slots if needed (see Chapter 5).
ATI Graphics Controller
The P4DPR-6GM+ features an integrated ATI video controller based on the Rage
XL graphics chip. Rage XL fully supports sideband addressing and AGP
texturing. This onboard graphics package can provide a bandwidth of up to

Server Chassis Features
The SC812S is Supermicro's second-generation 1U chassis and features three
hard drive bays, two front side USB ports and a revolutionary cooling design that
can keep today's most powerful processors running well below their temperature
thresholds. The following is a general outline of the main features of the SC812S
chassis.
System Power
When configured as a SuperServer 6012P-6, the SC812S chassis includes a
400W cold-swap power supply.
SCSI Subsystem
The SCSI subsystem supports three 80-pin SCA Ultra160 SCSI hard drives. (Any
standard 1" drives are supported. SCA = Single Connection Attachment.) The
SCSI drives are connected to an SCA backplane that provides power, bus termination and configuration settings. The SCSI drives are also hot-swap units.
Control Panel
The SC812S control panel provides important system monitoring and control
information. LEDs indicate power on, network activity, hard disk drive activity and system overheat conditions. Also present are a main power button, a
system reset button and an NMI (non-maskable interrupt) button.
I/O Backplane
The SC812S is a 1U rackmount chassis. Its I/O backplane provides one fullheight full-length and one half-height half-length PCI slots, one COM port (the
other is internal), one VGA port, two USB ports, PS/2 mouse and keyboard ports
and two Ethernet (LAN) ports and an external SCSI port. (See Figure 1-2.)

Chapter 2
Server Installation
2-1 Overview
This chapter provides a quick setup checklist to get your SuperServer
6012P-6 up and running. Following these steps in the order given should
enable you to have the system operational within a minimum amount of time.
This quick setup assumes that your SuperServer 6012P-6 system has come
to you with the processors and memory preinstalled. If your system is not
already fully integrated with a motherboard, processors, system memory
etc., please turn to the chapter or section noted in each step for details on
installing specific components.
2-2
Unpacking the SuperServer 6012P-6
You should inspect the box the SuperServer 6012P-6 was shipped in and
note if it was damaged in any way. If the server itself shows damage you
should file a damage claim with the carrier who delivered it.
Decide on a suitable location for the rack unit that will hold the SuperServer
6012P-6. It should be situated in a clean, dust-free area that is well ventilated. Avoid areas where heat, electrical noise and electromagnetic fields
are generated. You will also need it placed near a grounded power outlet.
Read the Rack and Server Precautions in the next section.
2-3
Preparing for Setup
The box the SuperServer 6012P-6 was shipped in should include two sets
of rail assemblies, two rail mounting brackets and the mounting screws you
will need to install the system into the rack. Follow the steps in the order
given to complete the installation process in a minimum amount of time.
Please read this section in its entirety before you begin the installation
procedure outlined in the sections that follow.
2-1
SUPERSERVER 6012P-6 Manual
Choosing a Setup Location:
- Leave enough clearance in front of the rack to enable you to open
the front door completely (~25 inches).
- Leave approximately 30 inches of clearance in the back of the rack
to allow for sufficient airflow and ease in servicing.
!
Warnings and Precautions!
!
Rack Precautions:
- Ensure that the leveling jacks on the bottom of the rack are fully
extended to the floor with the full weight of the rack resting on them.
- In single rack installation, stabilizers should be attached to the rack.
- In multiple rack installations, the racks should be coupled together.
- Always make sure the rack is stable before extending a component
from the rack.
- You should extend only one component at a time - extending two or
more simultaneously may cause the rack to become unstable.
Server Precautions:
- Review the electrical and general safety precautions in Chapter 4.
- Determine the placement of each component in the rack before you
install the rails.
- Install the heaviest server components on the bottom of the rack
first, and then work up.
- Use a regulating uninterruptible power supply (UPS) to protect the
server from power surges, voltage spikes and to keep your
system operating in case of a power failure.
- Allow the hot plug SCSI drives and power supply units to cool before
touching them.
- Always keep the rack's front door and all panels and components on
the servers closed when not servicing to maintain proper cooling.

Installing the SuperServer 6012P-6 into a Rack
This section provides information on installing the SuperServer 6012P-6 into
a rack unit. If the 6012P-6 has already been mounted into a rack, you can
skip ahead to Sections 2-5 and 2-6.
There are a variety of rack units on
the market, which may mean the assembly procedure will differ slightly.
The following is a guideline for installing the 6012P-6 into a rack with the
rack rails provided.
You should also refer to the installation instructions
that came with the rack unit you are using.
Identifying the Sections of the Rack Rails:
You should have received two rack rail assemblies with the SuperServer
6012P-6.
Each of these assemblies consist of three sections: an inner
fixed chassis rail that secures to the 6012P-6 (A) and an outer fixed rack
rail that secures directly to the rack itself (B). A sliding rail guide sandwiched between the two should remain attached to the fixed rack rail.
(See Figure 2-1.) The A and B rails must be detached from each other to
install.
To remove the fixed chassis rail (A), pull it out as far as possible - you
should hear a "click" sound as a locking tab emerges from inside the rail
assembly and locks the inner rail. Then depress the locking tab to pull
the inner rail completely out. Do this for both the left and right side rack
rail assemblies.

SUPERSERVER 6012P-6 Manual
Installing the Chassis Rails:
Position the fixed chassis rail sections you just removed along the side of
the 6012P-6 making sure the screw holes line up. Note that these two rails
are left/right specific. Screw the rail securely to the side of the chassis
(see Figure 2-2). Repeat this procedure for the other rail on the other side
of the chassis. You will also need to attach the rail brackets when installng
into a telco rack.
Locking Tabs: As you have seen, both chassis rails have a locking tab,
which serves two functions.
The first is to lock the server into place
when installed and pushed fully into the rack, which is its normal position.
Secondly, these tabs also lock the server in place when fully extended
from the rack. This prevents the server from coming completely out of
the rack when you pull it out for servicing.
Figure 2-2.
Installing Chassis Rails
Installing the Rack Rails:
Determine where you want to place the SuperServer 6012P-6 in the rack.
(See Rack and Server Precautions in Section 2-3.) Position the fixed rack
rail/sliding rail guide assemblies at the desired location in the rack, keeping
the sliding rail guide facing the inside of the rack. Screw the assembly
securely to the rack using the brackets provided. Attach the other assem-
2-4
Chapter 2: Server Installation
bly to the other side of the rack, making sure both are at the exact same height
and with the rail guides facing inward.
Installing the Server into the Rack:
You should now have rails attached to both the chassis and the rack
unit.
The next step is to install the server into the rack.
Do this by
lining up the rear of the chassis rails with the front of the rack rails.
Slide the chassis rails into the rack rails, keeping the pressure even on
both sides (you may have to depress the locking tabs when inserting).
See Figure 2-3.
When the server has been pushed completely into the rack, you should

Installing the Server into a Telco Rack:
If you are installing the SuperServer 6012P-6 into a Telco type rack, follow
the directions given on the previous pages for rack installation. The only
difference in the installation procedure will be the positioning of the rack
brackets to the rack. They should be spaced apart just enough to
accommodate the width of the telco rack.

Checking the Motherboard Setup
After you install the 6012P-6 in the rack, you will need to open the unit to
make sure the motherboard is properly installed and all the connections
have been made.
1. Accessing the inside of the 6012P-6 (see Figure 2-5):
First, release the retention screws that secure the unit to the rack.
Grasp the two handles on either side and pull the unit straight out until it
locks (you will hear a "click"). Next, depress the two buttons on the top
of the chassis to release the top cover. There is a large rectangular
recess in the middle front of the top cover to help you push the cover
away from you until it stops. You can then lift the top cover from the
chassis to gain full access to the inside of the server.
2. Check the CPUs (processors):
You should have one or two processors already installed into the
system board. Each processor needs its own heatsink. See Chapter
5 for instructions on processor and heatsink installation.
3. Verify the proper CPU clock ratio setting:
If the CPU speed is not automatically detected you will need to set the
correct speed with the BIOS Setup utility. See the CPU Speed and Frequency Ratio settings in BIOS (Chapter 7) for setting the proper CPU
speed.
4. Check the system memory:
Your 6012P-6 server system may have come with system memory already installed. Make sure all DIMMs are fully seated in their slots. For
details on adding system memory, refer to Chapter 5.
5. Installing add-on cards:
If desired, you can install add-on cards to the system. See Chapter 5 for
details on installing PCI add-on cards.
2-7
SUPERSERVER 6012P-6 Manual
Figure 2-5.
Accessing the Inside of the SuperServer 6012P-6
6. Check all cable connections and airflow:
Make sure all power and data cables are properly connected and not
blocking the chassis airflow. See Chapter 5 for details on cable connections. Also, check the air seals for damage. The air seals are located
under the blower fan and beneath the frame cross section that separates the drive bay area from the motherboard area of the chassis.
2-8
Chapter 2: Server Installation
2-6
Checking the Drive Bay Setup
Next, you should check to make sure the peripheral drives and the SCSI
drives and SCA backplane have been properly installed and all connections
have been made.
1. Accessing the drive bays:
All drives are accessable from the front of the server. For servicing the
CD-ROM and floppy drives, you will need to remove the top chassis
cover. The SCSI disk drives can be installed and removed from the front
of the chassis without removing the top chassis cover.
2. CD-ROM and floppy disk drives:
A slim CD-ROM and a floppy drive should be preinstalled in your server.
Refer to Chapter 6 if you need to reinstall a CD-ROM and/or floppy disk
drive to the system.
3. Check the SCSI disk drives:
Depending upon your system's configuration, your system may have one
or more drives already installed. If you need to install SCSI drives, please
refer to Chapter 6.
4. Check the airflow:
Airflow is provided by two heavy duty 10-cm blower fans. The system
component layout was carefully designed to direct sufficient cooling airflow to the components that generate the most heat. Note that all power
and data cables have been routed in such a way that they do not block
the airflow generated by the fans.
5. Supplying power to the system:
The last thing you must do is to provide input power to the system. Plug
the power cord from the power supply unit into a high-quality power
strip that offers protection from electrical noise and power surges. It is
recommended that you use an uninterruptible power supply (UPS).

Overview
There are several LEDs on the control panel as well as others on the SCSI
drive carriers to keep you constantly informed of the overall status of the
system as well as the activity and health of specific components. There
are also two buttons on the chassis control panel and an on/off switch on
the power supply.
3-2
Control Panel Buttons
There are three push-button buttons located on the front of the chassis.
These are (in order from left to right) a reset button, an MNI (non-maskable
interface) button and a power on/off button.
!
RESET: Use the reset button to reboot the system.
!
NMI: NMI stands for "non-maskable interrupt". Pressing this button
issues a non-maskable interrupt to force the server into a halt state. This is
used for diagnostic purposes, and allows you to perform a memory download to determine the cause of a problem.
3-1
SUPERSERVER 6012P-6 User's Manual
!
POWER: This is the main power button, which is used to apply or turn
off the main system power. Turning off system power with this button
removes the main power but keeps standby power supplied to the system.
3-3
Control Panel LEDs
The control panel located on the front of the SC812-SP chassis has five
LEDs. These LEDs provide you with critical information related to different
parts of the system. This section explains what each LED indicates when
illuminated and any corrective action you may need to take.
!
Overheat: Indicates an overheat condition in the chassis. This may
be caused by cables obstructing the airflow in the system or the ambient
room temperature being too warm. You should also check to make sure
that the chassis cover is installed and that all fans are present and operating normally. Verify that the heatsinks are installed properly (see Chapter
5). Finally, check the air seals for damage. The air seals are vertical
pieces located to the left and right of the fans and against the front side of
the chassis frame cross section that separates the drive bay area from the
motherboard area of the chassis. There is also a small air seal positioned
between the two fans.

Electrical Safety Precautions
!
Basic electrical safety precautions should be followed to protect
yourself from harm and the SuperServer 6012P-6 from damage:
! Be aware of the locations of the power on/off switch on the chassis as
well as the room's emergency power-off switch, disconnection switch or
electrical outlet. If an electrical accident occurs, you can then quickly
remove power from the system.
! Do not work alone when working with high voltage components.
! Power should always be disconnected from the system when removing or
installing main system components, such as the motherboard, memory
modules and the CD-ROM and floppy drives. When disconnecting
power, you should first power down the system with the operating
system and then unplug the power cords of all the power supply units
in the system.
! When working around exposed electrical circuits, another person who is
familiar with the power-off controls should be nearby to switch off the
power if necessary.
! Use only one hand when working with powered-on electrical equipment.
This is to avoid making a complete circuit, which will cause electrical
shock. Use extreme caution when using metal tools, which can easily
damage any electrical components or circuit boards they come into
contact with.
! Do not use mats designed to decrease electrostatic discharge as
protection from electrical shock. Instead, use rubber mats that have
been specifically designed as electrical insulators.
4-1
SUPERSERVER 6012P-6 Manual
! The power supply power cord must include a grounding plug and must be
plugged into grounded electrical outlets.
! Motherboard Battery: CAUTION - There is a danger of explosion if the
onboard battery is installed upside down, which will reverse its
polarities. On the P4DPR-6GM+, the positive side should be facing up.
This battery must be replaced only with the same or an equivalent type
recommended by the manufacturer. Dispose of used batteries
according to the manufacturer's instructions.
! CD-ROM Laser: CAUTION - this server may have come equipped with a
CD-ROM drive. To prevent direct exposure to the laser beam and
hazardous radiation exposure, do not open the enclosure or use the
unit in any unconventional way.
4-2
General Safety Precautions
!
Follow these rules to ensure general safety:
! Keep the area around the SuperServer 6012P-6 clean and free of clutter.
! The SuperServer 6012P-6 weighs approximately 30 lbs (13.6 kg) when
fully loaded. When lifting the system, two people at either end should
lift slowly with their feet spread out to distribute the weight. Always
keep your back straight and lift with your legs.
! Place the chassis top cover and any system components that have been
removed away from the system or on a table so that they won't
accidentally be stepped on.
! While working on the system, do not wear loose clothing such as
neckties and unbuttoned shirt sleeves, which can come into contact
with electrical circuits or be pulled into a cooling fan.
! Remove any jewelry or metal objects from your body, which are excellent
metal conductors that can create short circuits and harm you if they
come into contact with printed circuit boards or areas where power is
present.
4-2
Chapter 4: System Safety
! After accessing the inside of the system, close the system back up and
secure it to the rack unit with the retention screws after ensuring that
all connections have been made.
4-3
ESD Precautions
!
Electrostatic discharge (ESD) is generated by two objects with different
electrical charges coming into contact with each other. An electrical
discharge is created to neutralize this difference, which can damage
electronic components and printed circuit boards. The following measures
are generally sufficient to neutralize this difference before contact is made
to protect your equipment from ESD:
! Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
! Keep all components and printed circuit boards (PCBs) in their
antistatic bags until ready for use.
! Touch a grounded metal object before removing the board from the
antistatic bag.
! Do not let components or PCBs come into contact with your clothing,
which may retain a charge even if you are wearing a wrist strap.
! Handle a board by its edges only; do not touch its components,
peripheral chips, memory modules or contacts.
! When handling chips or modules, avoid touching their pins.
! Put the motherboard and peripherals back into their antistatic bags
when not in use.
! For grounding purposes, make sure your computer chassis provides
excellent conductivity between the power supply, the case, the mounting
fasteners and the motherboard.
4-3
SUPERSERVER 6012P-6 Manual

Advanced Motherboard Setup
This chapter covers the steps required to install processors and heatsinks to the
P4DPR-6GM+ motherboard, connect the data and power cables and install addon cards. All motherboard jumpers and connections are also described. A
layout and quick reference chart are also included in this chapter. Remember
to close the chassis completely when you have finished working on the
motherboard to protect and cool the system sufficiently.
5-1
Handling the P4DPR-6GM+ Motherboard
Static electrical discharge can damage electronic components. To prevent
damage to printed circuit boards, it is important to handle them very carefully (see Chapter 4). Also note that the size and weight of the motherboard can cause it to bend if handled improperly, which may result in damage. To prevent the motherboard from bending, keep one hand under the
center of the board to support it when handling. The following measures
are generally sufficient to protect your equipment from static discharge.
Precautions
• Use a grounded wrist strap designed to prevent static discharge.
• Touch a grounded metal object before removing any board from its antistatic bag.
• Handle a board by its edges only; do not touch its components, peripheral chips, memory modules or gold contacts.
• When handling chips or modules, avoid touching their pins.
• Put the motherboard, add-on cards and peripherals back into their antistatic bags when not in use.
Unpacking
The motherboard is shipped in antistatic packaging to avoid static damage.
When unpacking the board, make sure the person handling it is static protected.

PGA Processor and Heatsink Installation
!
When handling the processor package, avoid placing direct
pressure on the label area of the fan. Also, do not place the
motherboard on a conductive surface, which can damage the
BIOS battery and prevent the system from booting up.
IMPORTANT: Always connect the power cord last and always remove it before
adding, removing or changing any hardware components. Make sure that you
install the processor into the CPU socket before you install the heatsink. The
P4DPR-6GM+ can support either one or two Xeon 512K L2 cache processors of
up to 3 GHz. If installing one processor only, install it into CPU socket #1.
1. Lift the lever on the CPU socket.
Lift the lever completely or you will
damage the CPU socket when
power is applied. (Install a
processor into CPU #1 socket
first.)
2. Install the CPU in the socket.
Make sure that pin 1 of the CPU is
seated on pin 1 of the socket (both
corners are marked with a
triangle). When using only one
CPU, install it into CPU socket #1
(CPU socket #2 is automatically
disabled if only one CPU is used).
3. Press the lever down until you
hear it *click* into the locked
position. See Figure 5-1 for
pictures of the 603-pin CPU socket
before and after the processor is
installed.

4. Apply the proper amount of thermal compound to the CPU die and place
the heatsink on top of the CPU. Make sure the heatsink sits completely
flat on the CPU. If it's not completely flat, the space between the two will
degrade the heat dissipation function of the heatsink, which may cause
the processor to overheat.
5. Secure the heatsink by locking the retention clips into their proper
position. When correctly installed, the retention clips should *click* into
place and the three black tabs on the CPU retention pieces should
protrude fully through the corresponding holes on the retention clips. See
Figure 5-2 for a diagram of the heatsink installation procedure.
6. If installing two processors, repeat these steps to install the second
processor in the CPU #2 slot.
Figure 5-1.
PGA Socket: Empty and with Processor Installed
Warning!
!
Make sure you lift the lever completely when
installing the CPU. If the lever is only partly raised, damage
to the socket or CPU may result.

Connecting Cables
Now that the processors are installed, the next step is to connect the
cables to the board. These include the data (ribbon) cables for the peripherals and control panel and the power cables.
Connecting Data Cables
The ribbon cables used to transfer data from the peripheral devices have
been carefully routed in preconfigured systems to prevent them from blocking the flow of cooling air that moves through the system from front to back.
If you need to disconnect any of these cables, you should take care to keep
them routed as they were originally after reconnecting them (make sure the
red wires connect to the pin 1 locations). If you are configuring the system, keep the airflow in mind when routing the cables. The following data
cables (with their motherboard connector locations noted) should be connected. See the motherboard layout figure in this chapter for connector
locations.
! IDE Device Cables (J2A and J3A)
! Floppy Drive Cable (JP7)
! Ultra 160 LVD SCSI Cables (JA1 and JA2)
! Control Panel Cable (JF2, see next page)
Connecting Power Cables
The P4DPR-6GM+ has a 20-pin primary power supply connector designated
"ATX Power" for connection to the ATX power supply. Connect the
appropriate connector from the power supply to the "ATX Power"
connector to supply power to the motherboard. See the Connector
Definitions section in this chapter for power connector pin definitions.

SUPERSERVER 6012P-6 User’s Manual
Connecting the Control Panel
JF2 contains header pins for various front control panel connectors. See
Figure 5-3 for the pin locations of the various front control panel buttons
and LED indicators. Please note that even and odd numbered pins are on
opposite sides of each header.
All JF2 wires have been bundled into single ribbon cable to simplify their
connection. Make sure the red wire plugs into pin 1 as marked on the
board. The other end connects to the Control Panel printed circuit board,
located just behind the system status LEDs in the chassis.
See the Connector Definitions section in this chapter for details and pin
descriptions of JF2.

Installing Memory
Note: Check the Supermicro web site for recommended memory modules:
http://www.supermicro.com/TECHSUPPORT/FAQs/Memory_vendors.htm
CAUTION
Exercise extreme care when installing or removing DIMM
modules to prevent any possible damage. Also note that the
memory is interleaved to improve performance (see step 1).
DIMM Installation (See Figure 5-5)
1. Insert the desired number of DIMMs into the memory slots, starting with
Bank 1 (DIMM#1A, DIMM#1B). The memory scheme is interleaved so
you must install two modules at a time, beginning with Bank 1, then
Bank 2.
2. Insert each DIMM module into its slot. Pay attention to the notch along
the bottom of the module to prevent inserting the DIMM module incorrectly.
3. Gently press down on the DIMM module until it snaps into place in the
slot. Repeat for all modules (see step 1 above).
5-7
SUPERSERVER 6012P-6 User’s Manual
4. When installing modules into the two Bank 2 slots, you will need to
remove the power supply due to space constraints. Memory slots are
positioned at a 25 degree angle to fit full-sized memory modules into a
1U chassis.
Memory Support
The P4DPR-6GM+ only supports ECC registered DDR-200 (PC1600) SDRAM
memory. DDR-266 (PC2100) SDRAM is supported but only at 200 MHz (DDR200 speed). PC100/133 SDRAM is not supported. You should not mix DIMMs
of different sizes and speeds.
See Figures 5-5a and 5-5b for installing and removing memory modules.
Figure 5-5a.
Side View of DIMM Installation into Slot
To Install: Insert module vertically and press down until it snaps into
place. Pay attention to the bottom notch.
To Remove: Use your thumbs to gently push each release tab outward
to free the DIMM from the slot.

Adding PCI Cards
1.
PCI slots:
The P4DPR-6GM+ has one 64-bit 133 MHz PCI-X slot for a full-length
(standard) PCI card and one slim 64-bit 66 MHz PCI slot. The 64-bit 133
MHz PCI-X slot should have a butterfly riser card installed, which can accept
one standard sized PCI card and one low profile PCI card (see Figures 5-6a
and 5-6b).
2.
PCI card installation:
Before installing a PCI add-on card, see step 1, above. Begin by swinging the release tab on the I/O backpanel shield out to the left for the PCI
slot. Insert the PCI card into the correct slot on the butterfly riser card
(depending on whether it is a standard or low-profile card), pushing
down with your thumbs evenly on both sides of the card. Finish by
pushing the release tab back to its original (locked) position. Follow this
procedure when adding a card to either slot.
