OK thanks for that. Two people say 256 MB so that must be right :)
So the HCL is right and the front main screen is wrong.

SRM? (checks website), oh like the (ahem) "go prompt" or forth monitor
elsewhere.  I assume the significance of this is for network booting
only? If SRM doesn't know about a, say, 3C905-B, then it cannot network
boot but when Linux starts up all is well?

BTW, I was going to look at the ALO database but there is something
*VERY* unhappy on your webserver. I can connect to port 80 but I get
no reply from a HTTP request. This is talisman of course.
