May I ask you, and the list, a question (well, a couple) then: how much
RAM do you have installed? I have 4Gb on it, but I was unable to use it
all, because apparently some addressing space (about 400Mb) is reserved
for the southbridge. I found an option in the bios (the documentation is
terse on it, to say the least) which claims to "remap" memory to make
it all available. I tried enabling that, but then some drivers do not work
well (e.g. nvidia, but I can live with it) or do not work at all (e.g.
sk98lin, and this crashes the computer). Currently, for the sake of
stability, I left remapping disabled in the bios and everything works like
a charm, apart from the missing 400Mb, but this is not copletely
satisfactory. Anybody else went through this? Suggestions?
