I agree. As the sig file over optomistically states, I'm a hardware type. I
can find nothing on pc100 & pc133 ram problems. I even went to the
viahardware site - There's patch upon patch upon patch there, but nothing on
backward bios seeing low ram. I DO NOT want to have to buy a m/b to get
around this. It can't be sizes - because I halved the size. I even read the
eeprom on the ram chips, and they declare them to be 128MB each, but the m/b
only sees 64MB.
