i bet 8mb are lost because auf AGP, the agpgart driver in linux by default
grabs 8mb of memory.

I were wondering why video drivers would grab memory outside of the
allready existing 32 mb vram that there on the vedeo card.  My 600E
did'nt have any missing physical memory even though it had only 2mb
vram.  anything... thank you.
