Memory Problem

Using Mandrake Linux 7.0, it will only recognize 16 of the 128 meg on the motherboard. I know to add 'append = "mem=128' to lilo.conf, but what I don't know is how to add a second entry to that field. I already have a entry of 'append = "hdc=ide-scsi', and adding a second append command is viewed with displeasure by lilo. How can I add the second part to the hdc append? I have tried it many different ways and only get syntax errors from lilo. The motherboard is a FYI 440LX with a Intel 266 PII.
