Directly accessing RAM not under the control of linux


Hello,

This is probably is naive question.

We have a system with 1 GB memory. Out of this, i would like to restrict only 512MB for linux and would like to access the rest 512MB directly from an application that runs on linux.

What is the suggested means to achieve this on 2.6.x?

regards,
Prab
