Folks,

I have FBSD 2.1-STABLE on a Compaq Presario (has funky bios) and I've 
just added another 32MB RAM.  On boot the PC saw the new memory and 
autoconfiged it.  However, FBSD will only see 16MB of it.  

I had a similar problem with another machine but I wanted to go over 
64MB.  That required the MAXMEM parameter in the config file.  Is that 
necessary in this case or is there some conflict with the Presarios and 
FBSD?

Thanks,

Craig
