Re: Memory Checker (RAM)



Just a very quick note...
AFAIK memtest86 (GREAT Program....)
is in hwtools package not sysutils (at least it is in hamm
I dunno about bo but I would assume that it is the same)
BTW a tip...
I have seen tohers do it (and I did it myself..)
I added this to lilo.conf:
image=/boot/memtest86.bin
        label=memtest
works real nice ;)
