The problem has changed: I enabled 'Validate RAM addresses duringload' for
RedBoot and got the message:
*** Abort! Attempt to load S-record to address: 0x00108000, which is not in

version shows:
RAM: 0x00000000-0x000a0000, 0x0008ab30-0x000a0000 available

But the pc has 24MB of ram. How can I change this that RedBoot recognizes
ram above 0x100000.
