- I've been too literal, entering "Linux" in the keyword lists...

I'm leaning towards running Virtual Box 4/Fedora 16 i686=64-bits, so I 
thought 4GB a better idea than 3, but 8GB!
(considering "640KB ought to be enough for anybody"...)

Intriguingly following the Kingston reference mentioned (8GB total) 
results in them offering 1 and 2GB sticks only - so have placed a 
Customer Service request.

Similarly Crucial's largest offering is a 4GB kit (2*2GB sticks) -  once 
you get past their prissy insistent differentiation between IBM  and Lenovo.

Thank you,
