RHEL4 - Memory count incorrect?


When I go to Applications -> System Tools -> System Monitor and check my memory, the system reports that it is using 102 MB of 250MB of memory. The usage number seems fine, but I have 768MB of memory... What is going wrong?!

Pull up a console and run "free". That will narrow down if it's the system or the system monitor. Also, does your BIOS see the full amount of memory?
