Subject: Can I tell netbsd (via a bootflag) how much Ram my DS5k has?

Ive got a 5000/200, with netbsd 1.3.3 installed.
Memory slot 3 (the fourth one...), is buggered. A test-mem-m tells me
about some problem. With ram in this slot, NetBSD tends to fall over, with
I have 11*8meg memory cards. Giving me 88megs. Now, if i put 24megs in the
first three slots (0,1,2), and the rest in (4-12), the mem-test-m works
(because slot 3 isnt being used), and a cnfg reports 88 megs of memory.
But! When NetBSD boots, it finds 24megs of real memory.
Is there some way to force it to use the full 88?
I was thinking along the lines:
boot 5/rz0/netbsd memory=88M
Does anyone know how to do this? Or where i can find out?
Thanks for any help!!
