Re: No more than 1GB of RAM memory detected... but I have 2GB of RAM installed

The 386 version of the kernel that you use doesn't support that amount
of RAM. You have to use a 686 Kernel if you can.

You dont need to tell the kernel the amont of memory, if correctly
installed it should be recognized.
Verify that your memory is O.K. and all should be fine.

(You could watch the Bios-Boot-Level-Messages and see if the memory is
correct, or could use a knoppix-CD with memtest e.g.).
