No. By default Linux uses all the memory it finds, but sometimes the memory
detection has a problem - i.e. it doesn't detect all the memory. If you're
*sure* you have 128Mb RAM, and the BIOS checks 128Mb RAM, then at the LILO
prompt, type "linux mem=128M", which will force Linux to use the specified
amount of memory. If you want to make this permanent so you don't have to
type it in each time, edit your /etc/lilo.conf and put 'append =
in either the global section or in each kernel section.
