You mean Quad processors? Wow!

Actually, anything over 896 or so MB is considered High Mem. Don't ask me
why. I didn't write the code. If I did, I would have used a nice round
number.

IN OTHER WORDS, TURN HIGH MEM SUPPORT BACK ON!

Now, this part is just my guess, but try compiling the kernel for 586-smp
instead of a 686-smp. IMHO, the documentation isn't really clear about
exactly which processor crosses the threshold, and Intel's naming convention
doesn't help either.

But I could be wrong.
