[clug] memory issues

Hi All,

I was hoping for some clarification on a memory issue.  I know with 
HIMEM support off there is a smaller (896MB?) limit on the amount of RAM 
that can be accessed by the kernel.  The question is: Does this limit 
include swap space? (say a system has 512MB of physical memory, and 2GB 
of swap space - is it still limited to only 896MB of useable RAM?).

Any input welcome :)

Thanks in advance,
