Try "mem=0x6000000"  !

I have been running with more than 64MB with mem=0x<whatever> for
several years now. My machine box has changed over the time but even
the present one having 160MB on board (PII-330Mhz) boots with the whole
memory accessable with append="meme=0x10000000" in lilo.conf. By the way
I am still running the good old 2.0.36.

P.S. Hope I got the number of zeroes right!
