RAM usage

that has nothing to do with etch, but with the fact, that the 486 kernel
flavour doesn't support highmen. this is also the case in lenny.

and yes, the 486 kernel should be the default flavour; not just because
its the default d-i flavour, but because it runs on hardware that the
686 doesn't support; otoh, the 486 supports all hardware that the 686
does, but only some of them not optimally (such as machines with more
than 1gb ram).
