fails to detect RAM

Description of problem:
When I tried to install FC2 devel on x86-64, anaconda says "You do not
have enough RAM to install Fedora Core on this machine". it actually
has 512MB. but pressing Alt + F3 and switching VT, "0 kB are
available" is output. so anaconda fails to detect RAM.
How can I track it down?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to install FC2 devel using boot.iso
Actual Results: an error occurs.
Expected Results: able to install FC2 correctly
tried rawhide-20040129 tree.
Can you get the output of /proc/meminfo from an x86_64 box running
2.6? The format is probably differing from what we expect somehow.
Hmm, I just installed 2.6.1-1.65 and modutils-2.4.26-3 on RHEL3, boot
it then. but I can't see /proc/meminfo because kernel says oops at the
boot time. perhaps there may be the hardware problem.
BTW although this isn't useful information, anaconda works fine
without this bug when boot with i386's kernel.
Need to have /proc/meminfo information to really be able to track this
down. I'll try to get around to bringing my x86_64 test box up under
2.6 soon too...
This was an issue specific to 2.6.1-1.65 and is resolved in the
2.6.1-1.67 which will push soon.
