Hi,

My BIOS seems to only report 64mb to Linux, and consequently I
need to tell Linux otherwise (I have 80mb at present.)

I tried using the attached lilo.conf file, to create a bootable
LILO floppy with append="mem=80M" for the first image clause.
But when I boot, all I get is a flood of '01' on my screen.
What's the problem?

Thanks in advance.
James
