Re: [TCLUG:6164] memory

I don't know if this applies to distros other than Red Hat, I imagine it
does because lilo is the default linux loader.

At the lilo prompt, during boot
LILO: linux mem=48M

After boot (will confirm whether new setting took or not):

If so, add append="mem=48" to /etc/lilo.conf

This info is from pg. 336 of Red Hat 5.2 Linux Installation Guide.

Good luck!
