No you don't have to recompile a new kernel. Use the software installer look for the kernel that supports 1 gig of memory or more. Such as kernel-i686-up-4GB-184.108.40.206mdk. If this doesn't work you can add an option to your lilo.conf file to specify the exact am out of memory(The system Ive built with one gig of mem didn't need this option just the new kernel). If it Mandrake you don't have to recompile the kernel every time you want to change hardware.
