[Resume: Linux seen 64Mb in place of 96Mb installed]

I have a PC with Intel Pentium 150Mhz on an ASUS P24T2P4C (bios 1.7)
with 96Mb of RAM (2*32Mb EDO + 2*16Mb non EDO). Video card is Matrox MGA
Millenium 4Mb WRAM with X-Inside's Accelerated-X. I have a WDC3100 on
IDE primary master and a Philips CD on secondary master. I have also a
Sound Blaster AWE32.

Bios, DOS and Windows view my 96Mb, but, under Linux 2.1.10 & 2.0.25
