Will FreeBSD 2.2.2-RELEASE work with 384 megs of RAM?

I tried the MAXMEM=393216 option but it didn't work.

Absolutely.  We're running it with 512MB of RAM in ftp.cdrom.com, in
fact.

You sure you had it quoted correctly?  Here's the line we're using
(pasted directly from ftp.cdrom.com's kernel config file):

options         "MAXMEM=524288"

I've been curious for a while, why the "" ?  Does config do something
smart with the "", 'cos if it doesn't, surely they don't matter unless
they're hiding something from the shell.

So I'd expect

options "special*chars"

and

options no-special-chars

Is this not the case ?

I guess even simple numbers count as specials, since you must quote IBCS2.

1. Pentium with 16 Meg ram or 486 with 32 Meg ram

A friend of mine asked me what to buy for running Linux.
The choice is a pentium box with 16 Meg ram, or a 486 box with 32 Meg ram.
Assuming there will be no future upgrade, which one do you choose?
He mentioned that both are on 66 MHz clock.

Please give us an advice.
