Hi, ALL,
I have this in my dmesg:

Code:

Warning only 896MB will be used.
Use a HIGHMEM enabled kernel.
896MB LOWMEM available.
On node 0 totalpages: 229376
  DMA zone: 4096 pages, LIFO batch:0
  Normal zone: 225280 pages, LIFO batch:31


I am currently using the 2.6.18-r6 gentoo-sources.

Does this message mean that I am not able to use the whole 1G of my RAM?

Thank you.
