RAM questions
« on: September 21, 2004, 10:21:21 pm »
I have a few general questions about RAM.

1) If I install Konqueror there, would I have to reinstall it after a hard reset?

2) Can I use extra space on a CF card as system memory?

Yes. But not after a standard reboot or soft reset (just flicking battery switch, not pressing in the little button - this assumes a 5500).

Yes, using a swapfile, but you'd be better installing stuff to the CF card and using all your RAM, as working memory RAM.
