To answer the original question, if you are looking at the engine from the front of the vehicle, the 1st and 4th cylinders on the left side (driver's side) and the 2nd and 3rd cylinders on the right side are the ones that are deactivated.

At least if you were to believe Dodge's flash animation.

To see this...

1. Go to http://www.dodge.com/charger/

2. Then click on the red "GO" button to the right of "Unleash Charger". This will open a new window (Macromedia Flash Required)

3. Click on "POWER" at the bottom left of the screen

4. Then click on "MDS" on the left side of the screen (about halfway down). A flash animation showing the internals of the Hemi deactivating cylinders can be seen.

Wasn't sure of the sides but I AM sure it is the front and back on one side and the middle two on the other. It would be every other cylinder in the firing order.
