This was under the stock 2.6 386 kernel from a basic sarge install.
After I made the post, I installed xen on the machine and custom
built the kernel for the Athlon processor in it (took me a while),
and xen looks like it sees all 2G, so I'm assuming it was the i386
kernel. I will go back and put in an Athlon kernel just to make
sure. Thanks a lot.
