I have an Intel atlantis motherboard with integrated ATI Mach 64-CT graphic card and 32MB EDO ram. In DOS all mem is visible but in Linux there is only 16Mb visible. If i enter the boot parameter mem=32 Linux hangs. The Limit low 16MB is disabled and I haven't found any setting in the BIOS setup that will make any difference.

What version of Linux are you running?  What does "free -k" say?

Does your BIOS have a 16MB memory hole option?  If
so this should NOT be on.. Linux cannot cope with
that..
