    SubjectRe: missing memory with 2.2.12
    Brent:

    this is a common enough problem. memory detect doesn't always work
    properly, so you have to add and append line to lilo.conf. iirc (which i
    probably don't), it'll be

    image = /kernel_image
    root=/dev/root_device
    label=linux
    append="mem=128M"

    in your lilo.conf.

    personal guess is bunk bios.
