"Nolan flopped in chair, hunched shoulders, and pecked out:

Are you booting from a CD or DVD?

If a DVD, check to see if there is a kernel with the pae (physical address extension) flag on the DVD. If so select it to install.  This allows the kernel to use all of the memory the MB supports.

Most or (all) MB's have a limitation of 3.25 =/- a couple of of bytes".  Hth

Got fed-up, and tried 8.04...  All installed, re-booted and working, it seems.  As new to Linux and Servers, not sure what to expect. - Black screen, lots of letters.
