The  commands

lsattr -El mem0 will give some output like below

size     128 Total amount of physical memory in Mbytes  False
goodsize 128 Amount of usable physical memory in Mbytes False
.
so u have 2048mb RAM, the other way to cross check it is

bootinfo -r
the output will be lke
131072 = 128mb

or, you can use:

lsattr -El sys0 -a realmem

if you like Kbytes better.  It will give output like:

realmem 4194304 Amount of usable physical memory in Kbytes False

ok, all of you three have an answer for me that should do the trick; as I am not at the machine concerned right now, I'll check tomorrow; the first one to repeat his comment as an answer gets the score.
