On an AMD K6-233 with 128MB RAM, running Hamm under kernel 2.0.34, I only see 64
MB RAM available with 'free'. I compiled a 2.0.36 bootdisk and noticed two
things:

1) on boot, I noticed a message of an INT13 doing a memory probe
2) 'free' reported the full 128.

And this was with no repeat no lilo.conf append line. My AMD boots Winborg98
unless I leave the bootdisk in the drive (which I'm doing more and more often
these days...).
