Kirk is correct here.  I have it in one of my message that I got from this
list, I just can't find it right now.  Later!

Hi Scott: What is the format of the mount command you are using?  I am
kind of wondering if possibly you are typing it in wrong.  It is
supposed to be:

mount -t fs_type /dev/device /mount-point

There is a kernel command line to tell Linux how much memory you have
when it doesn't recognize it correctly.  I think it is something like
mem=128 or something.  Someone who is familiar with the correct
keyword please speakup!
