Re: tlug: To set the record straight.

Dear David,

    Oh maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan, I have never known such a wonderful
mailing list before. To such a silly and rudimentary question as
mine lots of people have given so much help. I just cannot think
how to thank you all!!! 
    Yes, my BIOS says the machine can recognize 96MB... but when
gotten into Linux .......mode, the message says memory is 64MB.
And  /proc/kcore is (67112960 Oct 23 15:53 kcore).  Well I will just
try all I need and see how it works...
