Stupid Configuration Documentation

I'm trying to find out how to get iPlanet to use a JVM that's not the default JVM because I'd like to see what happens on a test port to our app if I upgrade from 1.3 to 1.4 before I actually make a system-wide change. I was hoping that there would be a simple place to specify the path to the JVM, but if there is such a simple place, I haven't seen it yet. So, off to the web I go looking for documentation. I found the iPlanet Web Server, Enterprise Edition Programmer's Guide to Servlets: Appendix C JVM Configuration, which hasn't solved my problem, but did offer the following information about setting additional JVM settings:
However, if you need to specify settings for the JVM, such as additional classpath information, you can configure the JVM properties for iPlanet Web Server via the Administrator interface. You can add as many other properties as you want to (up to 64).
So, which is it -- can I add as many other properties as I want to, or am I limited to 64? They could have completely left out that part about "as many other properties as you want."

I am amused.
