I'm running two UDBs (VX42 233MHz) with 88 MB each: 2 x 24 MB (factory)
and 2 x 32 MB. They work fine. I haven't tried using 4 x 32 MB.
One of my machines is running RH 2.1 with a 1.3.90 kernel; the other is
running RH 4.0 with 2.0.18.

With RH 3.0.3 and 1.3.90 I had a problem with the 88 MB setup getting
non-existent memory errors, so I told Milo the memory size was 87 MB.
However, I discovered that I had an old version of Linload (1.2). Once
I upgraded to Linlaod 1.3 I had different problems, which went away when
I told Milo to use all 88 MB.
I never tried using a "mem=" command line option; I adjusted the memory using
the Milo MEMSIZE variable.
