We have a new machine: ASUS P2B-D, Dual PII 450MHz, 1G RAM, 10G EIDE.

but i couldn't get any kernel to work with the 1G RAM (i used
append="mem=1024M" )

2.0.34 gives:
Bad pmd in pte_alloc: 000000e7
Kernel Panic: Failed to allocate buffer hash table
In Swapper task - not syncing

2.1.130 will just stop after "Uncompressing kernel... ok"

right now, it's running fine with 2.1.130 and append="mem=768M"

How do i get the 1G RAM working?

any thoughts is appreciated! i am not on the list, so pls reply cc the reply
to me. thanks!
