Ram Not Showing



I had 1.5 GB  (333 Mhz) in a system running Sarge with a 2.6 kernel and all of 
it was used.  I've just replaced the .5 GB stick with a 1 GB stick, giving me 
2 GB of RAM.  When I boot, the motherboard reports 2 GB, but when I check:

[root@threshnet:root]$ cat /proc/meminfo
MemTotal:       906736 kB
MemFree:        685608 kB

VmallocChunk:   119324 kB

The motherboard uses onboard RAM for the onboard video, but that still doesn't 
explain why the motherboard reports 2GB and Linux seems to be using less than 
1 GB of RAM.  I'm actually better off with the .5GB stick in place of the 1GB 
stick.  What can I do to get Linux to use all the RAM?

Thanks!

Hal
