Were some lines on the port not used then?

Also, the connector does just pull off right? I removed the two screws that should hold it on. The connector on the male side (the side I don't need) came right off, but the one on the female side seems to be stuck tight. I'm afraid to use a lot of force if there's something I'm missing.

Those missing pins are for power, which the power sidecar doesn't need. My Rapport expansion sidecar has those empty as well.

My current setup has, in order, rapport expansion, parallel, memory, power, cluster, speech, jride. I suspect the disclaimer about having the power sidecar first is IBM limiting the time they spend testing every possible sidecar configuration.

Ah so it wouldn't have worked anyway. Oh well. I tried and couldn't get that connect to come off, I wonder if it was glued or something?
