The bios just tells linux it has less ram. I have a laptop with all SiS chips,
vga is a SiS630, and uses 8Mb added to its own 8Mb. Linux just thinks it has
120Mb of ram.
>> mem=250M - slow
>> mem=252M - slow
>> mem=256M - hangs on boot,
Do not know why it is slow, but it hangs because it is trying to use reserved video
