P 501 Total ram and physical ram


our company bought a new ibm entry level server p501 and redhat enterprise 5 linux, having 2GB of RAM,
when i installed it, and check RAM it only disply


Total used free
Mem: 1060 1000 60

I want to know why it is not displaying 2GB, where as IBM Support checked it using HMC it displys 2 GB.

thanks

Are you sure that high memory (over 1 GB) is enabled in kernel? Although 1060 is very strange for that case..
