There's a kernel patch around that lets you use dodgy ram in linux
boxes somewhere.. if you could patch a kernel (on another pc) and then
transfer it to your linux box with dodgy ram and tell the kernel where
the dodgy ram is, you might be able to get all the functionality of
your linux box back..

Personally I think: bad ram = asking for trouble, but if you apply the
patch I'm talking about to a kernel, not sure if they have it for 2.0
or just 2.2, but it could be worth looking into.

The other thing you could do is, say you have a 64mb ram chip in your
pc, and the chip where say 35mb sits is stuffed, you could just tell
lilo (or whatever you use to boot with) to pass "mem=32M" to the kernel
so it won't use that dodgy bit of ram (just the first 32mb of good
