By default you will only see the first 64MB RAM (See the help in the
kernel source make xconfig).
To solve this you must simply pass the "mem=256M" parameter to your lilo
You can make this permanent with an "append" line in you lilo config
I have read that on some machines you could have problems with 80MB RAM
(what a lucky guy am I : have only 80MB 8->).
