RAM over 64 mb

I have a 433 mhz Pentium II with 2 64mb RAM cards.
Under windows 98 the memory reads 128 mb.
Under Caldera 2.3 Linux using the memory fuction under KDE Control Center the memory reads 62.73 mb for total memory.

Am I reading this correctly?
Will Linux use over 64mb of RAM?
Is RAM a Conf item in the Kernel?

edit your /etc/lilo.conf file and add this line in there with this...

after this run /sbin/lilo to make the changes and then reboot. Linux should now recognize all 128 megs of RAM that you have.
