RE: Red Hat 8 - Instability - AGAIN



Also, if I remember correctly, Win98 uses memory from the top down, not the
bottom up as you might expect.  Not sure how Linux uses it.  Assumming that
Linux uses it from the bottom, then a low-address memory chip would give
Linux problems whereas Win98 would not.
