Thanks for the suggestions. I must have been doing something weird, because
when I tried it again it worked. It will accept mem=128m with no problem. By
the way, how is this affected by the 8m memory which is shared with the AGP ?
I have also set it to mem=120m and it works too. Is using mem=128m likely to
do bad things ?
The kernel version is 2.2.7 I think. As for recompiling - I haven't got that far in
the book yet. I haven't modified the lilo.conf yet - just adding the line at boot time.

I thought the 2.2 kernel meant you didn't have to do this any more.
Which 2.2 kernel version does SUSE 6.1 have?
Have you recompiled it? (don't worry, no-one will bite it you haven't).
What does your lilo.conf file look like now?
