The exact figure is the size of the RAM plus the size of the video ram.

I installed RH 7.1 on a A20m and there were no problems.

I'm a slackware user now, but the install of RH doesn't activate the
sensors_detect of lm_sensors. The safest way to do the install of RH 7.1 is
to use the expert install and manually deselect the installation of the
lm_sensors package. Not installing it will break a dependancy with KDE, but
just uncheck the box to check depedancies, and you should be fine.
