    Sorry iAMDking, I can't help you there!
    ust installed Linux myself. But i do have a VERY knowledgable resourse in my brother-in-law. He ia a hard-core Linux man! I'll ask him and try to get back soon! I can't help myself because I only have 64M and haven't had that problem, yet! Meanwhile, I hope you find the answer!

    Try editing your lilo.conf file located in /etc

    just add the line append "mem=256M". This passes the amount of memory to the linux kernel.

    A section of your lilo.conf should look something like this

    image=/boot/vmlinuz-smp
    label=linux
    root=/dev/hda5
    initrd=/boot/initrd-smp.img
    append="mem=256M"
    read-only

    The information will be different based on the kernel your using.
