pickledbeans:

man free? Is that Linux talk or is there someone that was held captive for a long time and you're just letting me know he's free now? :P

I'd love to post the output, but I'm still a baby in the Linux world.

The RAM is Compaq brand ECC memory. I believe there's 1 256 MB and 2 128 MB DIMMs. That's about all I know.

Thanks again guys!

Max.

MaxC --- Pickle what does the "free" command do?
Pickle ---RTFM (Read the funky manpage)!!!
MaxC -- Like what's a manpage, dude?????
Packle --- Dude, just logon to your box and type "man man" at the pormpt.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------
The point is, If you don't know what a command does, look it up BEFORE you exicute it.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Now log on to you box:
$ man free
$ free

Post output, What were checking is if you system is actually seeing all the ram?

One more question did you install any of the ram youself?

I don't think you can give better advice than this!!! When I started working here over 3 years ago, my boss taught me a few Unix commands (all of which I have forgotten) to take care of our Unix database server. One day it was having problems, so I thought I could fix it myself. I fixed it alright. You can't have database problems if you don't have a database! Yup, whatever I did blew away the entire database. Thank GOD for backups!

I'll check out that command in my Linux 7.2 Bible before I use it

This server is older than dirt, but if I had to guess, I would say that it came with one of the 128 MB DIMMs and the other 128 and 256 were installed later.

Thanks, yet again,
Max.

MaxC ---
I going to type REAL SLOW so that you can follow along

Login into the box with you user account
At the login in pormpt:
$ man free
After you read the man page.
$ free


Then post the output from the "free" command, so that we can check
and see if ALL 256mb of memory is showing up.
