I have a Pentium 4 Compaq PC with 256 MB RAM. The problem is that it shows 248 MB RAM and I guess that the 8MB gets used up in booting.
While formatting my PC it shows 8MB of unpartitioned space. Is this unpartitioned 8MB the RAM that I am missing? If yes then how can I use it as RAM? If no, then also how can I use it as RAM?
I actually want to install UBUNTU 10.10 Desktop edition, which requires 256MB RAM. So how can I recover it?
