I get the same memprobe error. Haven't bothered with it for some time as I
had problems getting the IBMMCASCSI recognized in 2.4.x but that seems to
have been fixed now.

Can't wait. Once I get this working I should be able to get Linux installed
on this old PS/2 box. Can't remember the model number off hand as I am in
the lab at the moment but it's a 486DX2/50 with 10 (or 12) Mib RAM, a
300Mib SCSI disk or so with 3c523 ethernet card attached to a AUI-RJ45
transceiver and then to a 10Mbit hub (works under DOS) and two graphics
cards (the internal one and an additional XGA/2 IIRC). Should make a nice
MCA test system once I get it networked and can install Linux on it... And
a nice serial console for kernel debugging, for that matter. (-:

I definitely will use it. You have just found another keen to test the
patch person. (-:
