I'm using a standard kernel and I get my 2Gb of RAM:
[root at squid root]# uname -a
Linux squid 2.4.20-18.9 #1 Thu May 29 07:08:16 EDT 2003 i686 i686 i386
[root at squid root]# free
total used free shared buffers cached
Mem: 255252 251720 3532 0 88352 88468
-/+ buffers/cache: 74900 180352
Swap: 522104 15400 506704
[root at squid root]#
First check your BIOS 'OS Install Mode' setting, if turned on BIOS limits
RAM to 1GB.
