RAM install check command


I've just installed ubuntu for the first time and it is great and I recommend it to anyone, especially Newbies. Very easy installation, a great look and feel, SAMBA installed straight away and I was able to get into my XP box without any configuration.

Anyway, I need to find out if the RAM I put into the box is working and I'm not sure how to find that out. If anyone knows a command line query I'd be very grateful.
