<pre wrap="">Why not...
:-) I didn't want to discourage you from trying to recompile your
kernel... just wanted to say that if all you need is to "fix" things
so that you see all of your 4GB (or more) of system RAM, all you need
to do is install the Server Kernel.
<pre wrap="">OK I've installed it, but freemen gives again 3.2Gb...
To ask the obvious... did you reboot? when you rebooted, did you
select the right kernel from the boot menu?
Yes I did reboot and selected the proper kernel.<br>
I've dig into Dell's bios and there is NO memory hole option... I phone
the hotline, and they said me that this option is not available on Dell
So even if I use the right 32bits kernel and set correct options, I
think it will be impossible to address more than 3.2 Gb on a 32bits
system since I can't modify this option in the bios :(<br>
I can't also install a 64 bits platform, because I need some enterprise
applications that are known to be incompatible on 64bits...<br>
That's a pity ...<br>
