Scyld memory detection

I'm having problems getting all the memory detected on my nodes.  Scyld
is only detecting 64MB of RAM (they each have 512).  Here is my
kernelcommandline option in /etc/beowulf/config

kernelcommandline "apm=power-off mem=512M"

I've since rewritten the kernel image on the slaves with beoboot-install
and rebooted the slaves, but no joy.  What am I missing?
