Linux Redhat 7.2 is not reading all my memory?


I have verified that all the memory is ok. It reads a little under 4 gigs. I have 5 gigs. Does anyone know how to force linux to read the rest of the RAM. I know there was a way in lilo.conf, but RH 7.2 uses GRUB i think. Well there is no lilo.conf. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Does anyone have any ideas on this. Maybe its a problem with Linux. Just as a test I put win2k on this. THere was no problem at all. So it could very well be a limitation of linux

Did you check you set the appropriate options in your kernel config for High Memory support (CONFIG_NOHIGHMEM)?
