Knoppix on Compaq 1690 RAM?
I'm a total newbie who just installed Knoppix on an old Compaq Presario (a 1690 I believe). The thing is, I don't think it's recognizing a 256 MB RAM chip I snagged and installed into the open slot. The RAM is the right spec and was recognized under Windows 98, but Knoppix is so slow it's unusable. Also I can hear the HD spinning as it swaps back and forth. Is there something I can/should do to get it to recognize the RAM? Thanks in advance for all your help.
