RAM Problems when installing mandrake 9.2


ok, i keep getting this error. It says that the installer cant make a RAMdisk (or something like that) because it says I only have 16 megs of RAM. But i got 196 megs of it??? Has anybody had this problems before? I'm trying to install on a Compaq Proliant 1500

How much RAM does your motherboard BIOS think you have installed?

Could be memory failure.

It says that I have 196 megs when I boot up and when I run the ROM Diagnostics

I've tried changing the RAM. I think its all good, I dont have a good diagnostic program to test the ram
