[SLE] Why doesn't my added memory show up?

I have a box running SuSE 6.4. I just popped in a 256 Meg DIMM. I had a
128 Meg DIMM. The problem is, Linux says I still only have 128 Meg.
What's up with that? Do I need to tell Linux something? I didn't think

The BIOS recognizes the full SIMM without difficulty, and the memory test
runs ok at bootup. I have an Abit BH6 mobo, v 1.01. Bios is dated
something around 6/28/00 (I just updated it a few weeks ago). Could it by
my mobo, or some BIOS settings?

The DIMM came out of another machine, where Win98 had recognized it
