Simpler than that. He doesn't have 196mb, he has 192mb. The 196 that he
thinks he has is what the TP displays during the power-up sequence, but
it's measure in 1000 bytes, not 1024 bytes. :-)
Change the lilo line to "191M" and try it again. (I know, 'cuz my TP 770X
has 192mb of RAM also.)
As a side issue, it seems that "191M" works but "191m" doesn't. Is the
kernel really case-sensitive on this point? Seems a little nit-picky to
