yes, though only 3 gb of memory is available.

Yeah.

Bios doesn't recognize the 4th gb of memory with the remapping enabled
in bios and the remapping doesn't seem to work with PAE or x86_64.

I've contacted customer support at asus and hope...they can get a bios
that will let me do a x86_64 install that will recognize all my memory.

The current bios is only a month old and actually in beta and was
released for windows to address this problem on a 64 bit system.

Their remapping scheme seems to fail under linux though unless there is
something I don't know about.
