LinuxNewbie.org: Wheres the RAM?

The purpose of this document is to help you get Linux to recognize all of your RAM.the problem isn't with Linux, it's with your motherboard's BIOS. Some BIOSes cannot properly report memory over 64 MB, so this information must be provided before the kernel is loaded into memory. This is done by passing this info as a boot time argument, so the reliability of the system does not depend on a flaky BIOS report.
