Has anyone used this configuration successfully?

We have a SystemPro with 104MB (yeah, I know, it's a real sob story here :-)) 
that reports this at boot:

NetBSD 1.0_BETA (BSGAHA) #0: Sun Jul 31 18:15:51 CDT 1994
CPU: i486DX (486-class CPU)
real mem  = 16252928
avail mem = 14184448

According to the EISA configuration, memory is running in "Compaq Compatible 
mode", whatever that means.  There is also a choice for linear mode, but the 
EISA configuration changes it back to Compaq Compatible mode when I change it.

Anyone seen this before?  I want to run INN on this beast, and that memory 
would certainly be helpful.  It's also seriously proprietary memory, so if I 
can't use it, it's not even useful in other machines around here.

Thanks for any thoughts,
