I just tried "mem=4024M" and the machine is running fine but:

[frankcox at mutt ~]$ free
             total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
Mem:       3342416     702628    2639788          0      16480     289760
-/+ buffers/cache:     396388    2946028
Swap:      2031608          0    2031608

I have more ram now than I did with "mem=2G" but I seem to have lost 760mb;

I'm a lot closer to where I want to be, though.

Thanks for sharing your idea!
