What I expect is that the i686 detects about 3GB of free memory (not
the whole 4GB). according to different forums linux (and windows x86)
x86 should be able to detect up to 3,2GB of free memory (the limit of
32bits). but my fedora 9 i686 sees only 2,25gb (which is away from the
3GB). Windowsxp sees exactly the same amount of memory.
So either i got a crapy mashine or the forums are wrong.
Check your motherboard firmware revision, I've seen bugs where certain
firemware will limit what the software can see.
