You can use the boot option "mem=256MB" or write it into the "append" line
of your lilo.conf.

If you compile your kernel with "make zlilo" there's a limit of about 500
KB (the uncompressed kernel has to be less than 1MB), if you use "make
bzlilo" there is no limit. Use modules for devices not needed at boot-time
(floppy, printer, tape, scanner, ISDN, Ethernetcards, etc.).

Have fun
