Well... I have a 256mb (sdram sodimm pc100) sitting around, but it is of
VERY low quality. I will stick it on and hope for the best. If I
remember from the last few times I have run across this issue, the board
will still boot and run just fine, but it will only be able to access
128mb of the 256mb stick. I think. I will let you guy's know how it
End the end I am looking only for one thing, boot time. How fast can I
get from power on to playing music in my embedded automotive application
(Car computer). The less memory I have, the less I need to suspend to
disk. I will give it a nice big swap space to play with.
