I have the same issue here on a AMD Duron machine with 1256 Mb RAM but when 
the kernel is booting the first 5 characters after the word "Booting" are 
replaced with ABCDE.
So, the whole message is: "Booting ABCDEUncompressing linux..."

Comment 5 Chris Sorisio 2007-10-22 18:19:16 UTC boots as expected.
