Memory and socket problems.

Hi Linuxoids!

My DEC Alpha 166 MHz UDB refuses to recognise 2 32 mega byte true
parity RAM chips.

The 32 MB ram chips were installed with 2 4 meg chips, or with 2 8 meg
chips. In each case the UDB thinks that the 32 meg chips are 8 megs.

The amount of memory the UDB recognizes during boot time, via the
Supplementary Menu, under Hardware Configuration.

Has anyone seen this problem, or how to cure it?

I called the company where I purchased the Alpha, and they know of no
jumper of any other option that must be set for large memory chips, or any
other thing to be done.

Also, I am getting a message "Socket destroy delayed". What causes this?

Also, we loaded Redhat 3.0.3 linux from CD. (Thanks to my good friend,
and his daughter, for handing in there until 230AM last night working on
this problem!)

Any help is appreciated.
