I have just installed redhat linux 6.2 onto a PC with 256MB of RAM on an MS-6153VA ATX VIA Apollo Pro133 Mainboard.  Linux is reporting that there is only 64MB of RAM.

The BIOS, win95 and win98 all report 256MB of RAM.

You can make that permanent if you are using lilo by editing your lilo.conf

append="mem=128M"

then running /sbin/lilo

This option is described in the lilo man page if you are interested in further reading.  It's due to a limitation in some BIOS's design,

best wishes,
