I installed Debian Sarge netinst on this machine and after examining the system i found out that top only shows 906MB RAM, even /proc/meminfo shows only 906MB. I tried this with both the 2.4 (kernel-image-2.4.27-1-386) and 2.6 (kernel-image-2.6.8-1-386) Kernels. After that I ran memtestx86 to see if I had malicious Memory, but it showed the full 2GB and it ran a whole day without showing any errors.

HIGHMEM4G should be enabled for 686, 686-smp and k7 kernels...
