Default Memory tester

I can't seem to find a good one.

Memtest86 says it only works for x86 architecture.

I have an older computer with an i586 architecture running dsl linux, and I've added a stick of ram.

DSL doesn't show that it's been added. Before, I had a 128mb ram and 32mb ram.

I replaced the 32mb ram for another 128mb ram.

DSL still shows 124mb ram which isn't right anway.

I need something bootable or not for linux that shows runs memory diagnostics, and shows how much ram you really have.

Thanks a lot.

Reply ASAP so I can know whether to keep the ram or to return it.

Thank you.

386, 486, 586, 686, x86, all the same thing.

x is a variable.
