Check your motherboard manual. I believe that some boards (not my Intel
Zappa, though) may need DIP switches/jumpers changed to properly use EDO
RAMs. That'd be my main suggestion, because I have fast page AND EDO on
my board (it's equipped to handle that type of bank-split setup) and Linux
runs quite nicely. Just my $0.02...
