I tried what people said to do and I get different values that do not match
what the bios say.
Why is there so large a difference?
How can this be explained???

# /root >sysctl -a | grep -i memory
Virtual Memory:         (Total: 2871K, Active 91444K)
Real Memory:            (Total: 37324K Active 12756K)
Shared Virtual Memory:  (Total: 15088K Active: 9864K)
Shared Real Memory:     (Total: 3284K Active: 2700K)
Free Memory Pages:      20896K

# /root >dmesg | grep -i memory
real memory  = 67108864 (64 MB)
avail memory = 56094720 (53 MB)

bios show
base       640k
extended 64512k
cache      384k
total = 65536k
