Is it possible to add 24bit address RAM expansion? I know the TX only has 8bit ISA slots, but I'm wondering if there is any CPU socket expansion piece of ingenuity out there...
Thanks.

No. The address lines needed aren't connected to anything... you'd have to either build a CPU interposer or tap the CPU leads directly. Though I suppose it could be done that way...

On the plus side, the CPU is socketed, so it could theoretically be done.
