Hey, there are several non-contiguous memory patches out there, if you
can compile your own kernel. Patches have floated on amiga-dev at
several times. Either go to an archive (preferred) or ask me for a
multisegmented memory patch. Those two extra megs *will* make a
difference as they will be used for the kernel which is the most
important code to execute fast. Just remember to use -p as option to
loadbsd, or otherwise the kernel will end up in the 16-bit memory.
