I have a problem with a notebook of mine.
The dumb BIOS copies itself to a location at the end of the addressable RAM
area. In my case, I have 20MB installed, the last 128kB of the 16th MB are
used and blocked with it.
I can now use it when I tell the kernel to have mem="16MB-128kB" but I would
really like to use the last 4MB too! So would have to tell the kernel not to
use those 128kB. But how?
I remember that there is such a possibility for some strange cards that
occupy some RAM area some something but forgot how to do it.
Please help! Any hints, even FAQ pointers, are welcome!
