How much memory does the laptop have?
Comment 2 Krisztian Hildebrand 2004-09-20 19:18:46 EDT
Should open box to see RAM modules. Windows 98 reported 80 MB. I 
think it is a total of 96, 16M being reserved for video ??? 
Comment 3 Jeremy Katz 2004-09-21 10:00:58 EDT
Can you provide the contents of /proc/meminfo?  (Booting with 'linux
text' should let you get it installed)
