Problem solved - I'm now booting from Lilo -
and all the memory is being detected.
I have no idea why the loadlin way wasn't
working, but I'm happy now.
As for the mem= option - it's probably not
working for the same reason that the memory
wasn't working in the first place.
Thanks for all the suggestions people,
