You can't get more than about 900 MB of accessible RAM with that kernel.
I'm sorry for not being clear, but I think that the stock Debian
kernels were 4 GB enabled starting with 2.6.11. So, you would need to
be using a kernel from Etch or Sid. Alternatively, you can roll your own.
My stock Debian 2.6.7 kernel IS set for HIGHMEM4G:
mns@xander:~/meadery/gallery$ grep HIGHMEM /boot/config-2.6.7-1-k7
# CONFIG_NOHIGHMEM is not set
# CONFIG_HIGHMEM64G is not set
So I guess that I am OK if I buy the extra memory that I was thinking
of. I find it curious that some are set one way and some the other.
Could it be because I am using a k7 kernel?
