RH mem fix not working.

All-In-One G3 (Yellow Dog Linux, based of Fedora 2)
40 GB HD
First partition 100MB

After much wrestling I got YDL to get to the initial text install, just to have it tell me that I don't have enough RAM. I have 128 and Red Hat's minimum is that. I upped the RAM disk size to 128000 but that didn't make it go away. I set the memory via "linux mem=128" it then (along with Mandrake PPC) stops at the initial "Welcome to Linux, kernel..." screen with the last line being "hash: find piece"
Thanks for the help.

Ahh well, we need to have actual room in the RAM for the installer. I changed that around to just 8000 for the RAM disk but I still get the not enough RAM error message even when I hardcode the RAM to 140M (I randomly got a RAM stick yesterday.)
