Re: Can't use all 256M of ram!!

That is strange. How much ram does it reconize when you run top after
you boot? I am not using any append options in lilo.conf, and linux
recognizes all 256 mb of my RAM.

I tried decreasing the amount of ram in the append line, but to no avail.  When I comment the line out, everything's fine.  I don't understand why it used to work, and now it doesn't.
