That's an old, well-known problem. You can work around it by
a) setup.exe /f:16 or
b) the BIOS setup option "Memory hole at 15...16M".

BTW: Can Windows use the whole memory? (Check Program Mangler's "Info"
box - it should show the free memory in the RAM plus the swapfile.)

IMO IE still handles CSS best, but a combo of Netscape and Opera is
perfectly sufficient, too. (Opera being used for pages with nested
tables and similar stuff then.)

Just my EUR0.02.

BTW the parts of my poor old DX/2 are spread all over the room at the
moment - while swapping the case, I discovered that the CMOS battery
(such a 3.6 V NiMH thingy) was about to leak. Now I'll need a new one -
unfortunately the shipping costs twice that of the battery itself :(...
