Lightbulb Problem with installing SCO openserver 5.0.5 on IBM Lenovo R61

Hi
I m trying to install SCo 5.0.5 on my laptop but it fails, I was able to install it on another computer and it did work, but with this IBM LENOVO R61 Laptop, it is giving me the message Memory error loading kernel, I searched the net concerning this issue and found that i have to write this line to be able to install it(mem=1m-16m,16m-1024m/s/n. it is some sort of mapping issue with the memory. WELL it did work, I was able to install it then when I restarted the computer it did not boot, Again I did write the command line defbootstr mem=1m-16m,16m-1024m/n/s anf did not work. it said memory in use full, and there are overlapping issue, DOES ANYONE have any tips concerning this issue, your help is HIGHLY APPRECIATED. THanKS a lotSmilie Smilie
