It was total baloney. But they would not sell you an memory beyond
128MB, and they said they would not support it if you upgraded it since
it was not "certified."
*TWO* Dell sales reps at the balls to even say, "Linux doesn't support
more than 128MB of RAM." I "corrected" both of them, and they
eventually said, "well, we don't support it if you put more than 128MB
of RAM in it, which is the only configuration we will sell you."
Again, this was "someone pushing buttons."
