 I'm not sure but I think my H17 board actually has
a regular 2716 on it. As Patrick mentioned, there were
a lot of optional select levels for the various xx16
ROMs. In my pile of ROM reading stuff, I have a couple
of sockets wired such that I can avoid accidentally
getting the programming voltage to the chips and
inversions for the various selects. I do this with
simple jumpers since the programmer is not a real active
circuit. In a real circuit, one might need an inverter.
 It isn't going to hurt anything to try a straight 2716.
