Description Andrew Martynov 2004-07-12 04:47:41 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.3)
Gecko/20030312

Description of problem:
Documentation said 
'At the end of the kernel line, add
mem=xxM
or
append=xxM'.

But few line above /etc/lilo.conf sample contains the line
append="mem=128M".

So I suppose that it is simple mistake.

The proposition should be:
'At the end of the kernel line, add
mem=xxM
or
append="mem=xxM"'.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
rhel-ig-x8664-multi(EN)-3-HTML-RHI (2003-07-25T17:10)

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Open RHEL 3 Installation Guide
2. Look at end of paragraph C.4.6
3.

Thanks again for the feedback. We are changing some of the content
regarding our boot loaders and this particular section will be removed.

This change will be reflected in the next release of the installation
guide.

Thanks again!
