I recently read here that someone needed the memtest syntax.

using "dynamic -r" will get you your starting address and size.
Remembering that the address is in hex, but the size is in decimal 

doing the decimal --> Hex conversion in your head or calacutor.

Then do the following:

	memtest -sa <start_address> -l <length> -p \
		<pass_count> -bs 1024 -se <soft_error_threshold>

I did this:

	memtest -sa 0x0002B260 -l 0xFDFE0000 -bs 1024 -p 10000 -se 2

This took about 5 seconds for this to complete. I only have 256MB in
this machine right now.

You don't have to test the whole thing either, you can pick and choose
if you have more banks of memory and such.
