Re: slink resc1440 disk does not work on 1GB memory machine

Try booting with a "rescue mem=XXXXM" at the prompt.  What I noticed on the
2.0.xx kernels is that if I didn't put in that I had more than 64 megs of RAM,
it wouldn't recognise it.  I'm not sure if that's the case with the 2.2.x
kernels or not, but it's worth a try.
