the 605 i just picked up has an interesting little quirk. it has a 16mb ram stick so total ram is 20mb. however, no matter what os I am using (including if i boot from a floppy) the OS always takes up 16mb. I've wiped and reinstalled several times and it really seemse to have no effect. I've tried both 7.1 and 7.5.3. i've never seen a mac do this before, any ideas?

Turn on 32bit Addressing in the Memory Control Panel. If it's in 24 bit mode all memory past that point turns up as a variably humongous system memory allotment in the "about this mac" info window.
