    Not Recognizing All My Memory...


    How can I get Slackware 10.2 to use all my memory? I have 1.5GB of RAM and other distros I have installed, when using the free command, show all 1.5GB either free or used. But, 10.2, for some reason, only shows about 920-940MB of RAM...is there an option to have it use the rest???
