Okay, Okay... :P I think that I am seeing the light. After paying attention
to what you were saying, I looked through my (sparse) manual, and located the
SROM. In the diagrams, it is number 16, component number U12, described as:
"Xilinx serial ROM (initialization code) chip (mbB164.30)"
and it is located right next to the bottom SIMM socket. It IS socketed, and
has a yellow paper label that reads "U12 DAF2"
I suppose that this is the little creature that needs to be replaced. :)
I was fooled, because the SRM console ALWAYS saw 128 MB. MILO, however,
had to be told that I had 128 MB, or would default to 32 MB.

I find this interesting:
With the 2.0.12 MILO and the 2.0.18 kernel, fsck would always validate my
/usr partition, whereas with the 2.0.22 MILO and the 2.0.18 kernel, it would
always FAIL. Ack. Happily, it took that catalyst to get me to see the
light. If I had been following the (ahem.. unspoken) rules (bug!) and
had / and /usr on one partition, I'd have never had that kick in the pants
to get a solution.
thanks much for your insight.
