SubjectRe: adding another 16meg to make 32meg

Hi Richard,

I know, my friend which gave me the memory pulled it out of his linux
system (of 40meg) and gave it to me. It worked fine on his 1.2.13 elf
release.

Nope, I checked this immediately when it stuffed up, there's absolutely no
reason for me to ever set this, as I've always had at least 16meg with
linux.

I run dos and netware, and have tested it with dos, works fine.

The bios recognised the ram, it checked the ram, himem.sys checked it,
everything was a ok on other platforms, when booting into linux, it kept
spitting the dummy.

It's a shame also, as I want 32 meg in this machine.
