Firstly, all the ICs fit with pin 1 (notched end) towards the display. And it's obvious where the 40 pin chip (processor, etc) goes.
I _think_ that for a -E machine it doesn't matter which of the 8 pin ICs goes where. In a -C machine, the top position, closest to the display, receives the backup supply, so must be used for the RAM, but in a -E, all the
locations are wired the same. I am almost certain that you won't damage anything by trying it.
