Mmmmh.. I guess that's right, it's not the sane but extra
ram is a prerequisite for pixil and lots of other fun stuff.

At this point I think it would be nice to have a one-size-fits-all 
build, see my thoughts about getting rid of DSGBA and NDS in another
mail in this thread. The idea of having two .nds files in the tarball
is great actually because it means we can probably actually achieve
having only a single type of build.

But why did you call it "dslinuxm"? Why not something more descriptive
like dslinux-mem.nds or dslinux-ram.nds? If you want the names to
fix into 8.3 dos filename length I guess we could also use linux.nds
and linuxmem.nds/linuxram.nds or something.
