Comment 1 Arjan van de Ven 2002-04-10 04:54:14 EDT
can you try adding "mem=xxxM" where xxx is the amount of memory in your machine
in megabytes, minus 16 ?
Comment 2 Timothy Williamson 2002-04-10 13:34:15 EDT
I attempted both mem=240M and mem=248M (Bios reports 262MB so I tried both). 
Both resulted in the same error.
Comment 3 Bugzilla owner 2004-09-30 11:39:29 EDT
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
