SubjectRe: Why linux sometimes recognizes only 64mb memory while I have 400mb
well yeah... that's probably true.. i do believe that 2.0.36 actually
will/does do autodetecting in the prereleases.. i am not sure though
because well, i don't have > 64 mb of ram... sorry for being confusing..
i will avoid it if possible next time... and true that it is in turn
passed to the kernel and what not... sorry for any confusion i may have
caused..
