Installing/Using Linux with 1GB of RAM HELP
I am trying to Install RedHat 9 or Mandrake 9.1 on the following machine
1GB DDR 2100
40GB WD Drive
well anyway. i had been running windows 2k with the 1gb of ram for a year prior to my attempt at installing linux once again. redhat boots from the cd but when it asks where i want to install from in the actual installation program, i select cdrom and it wont see it. then i tried mandrake, mandrake hangs before bringing up the interface for installation if i have 1gb of memory.
now i tried using 512 (1 stick) and it worked fine. but then when i add the second stick it hangs before booting up. i tried each stick by itself in each slot and it works fine. just not both together. I remember seeing a setting somewhere to specify the amount of physical memory but i cant remember where. PLEASE HELP....i hate running at 512...lol
