surpassing the 64Meg RAM limit

surpassing the 64Meg RAM limit

Advice a friend gave me was to add the line:
append="mem=98M"
as a parameter in my /etc/lilo.conf so that I could use all
98Megs of my RAM.  During boot init halted at an error just
after mounting the root partition read-only.  Here's a clip
of my boot screen:
"VFS: Mounted root (ext2 filesystem) readonly
init: error in loading shared libraries
/lib/libc.so.6 : undefined symbol: _nl_C_LC_CTYPE_class"
What advice could you give to correct this difficulty?  I can
always return to normal use of 64Megs in the meantime by
removing that line, but I'd like to use all of my RAM.

are you sure you don't mean 96M of ram?  (64 + 32 == 96)

Yes that is correct.  And in fact was my problem.  It works perfectly now,
thank you for your help!
