I am able to succesfully install RH8.0 in text mode with 24Mb of ram. 
Even though Bios was able to detect and run with 48Mb ram, redhat was not able 
to access the memory bank for some unknown reason.

please see if you can find out anything.

boot with "text" at the boot: prompt to install via the text mode installer
