ServerWorks ServerSet IIIHE[-sl] chipset-based mainboards.  It can
support upto 4 banks of 4 DIMMs of registered, ECC PC100/133 SDRAM and
1GB DIMMs are an option (although somewhat more expensive per MB than
256-512MB DIMMs registered, ECC PC100/133).

I haven't 16 DIMM slots on anything less than a 4-way Xeon (the
ServerSet III supports either Xeon or P3), although that doesn't mean
someone didn't implement 16 DIMMs for just a dual-P3 (or Xeon).
