Other boxes run 4 sticks of 1 gig each of Corsair XMS-2 dual channel
pc6400 ram.  Some boxes are at Abit BIOS rev level 10 and some at 11.
the 8gig box is at rev 11 (abit-kn9-kn9c11.zip)

I have not tried the mem= kernel param yet but I will probably remove
sticks of ram 1 at a time to see what happens.
