Nice that you can afford so much memory. I take over 80 min to
compile the kernel, and some people require over 24 hours!
I would like an extra 16kB very much. It's 4 pages, each of which
helps to prevent swapping. Some people even trim everything but
the 1.44 MB support out of the floppy driver to save _one_ page
of precious memory. I will shut up if you send me 32 MB of memory
in 8 30-pin simms.
