    > Is it highmem-related? Can you try it with mem=256M?

    Bad idea, the kernel crashes & burns when I use mem=256, I had to boot
    2.6.20-rc5-6 single to get back into my machine, very nasty. Remember I
    use an onboard graphics controller that has 128MB of RAM allocated to it
    and I believe the ICH8 chipset also uses some memory, in any event mem=256
    causes the machine to lockup before it can even get to the boot/init
    processes, the two leds on the keyboard were blinking, caps lock and
    scroll lock and I saw no console at all!

    Justin.
