[RndTbl] Debian doesn't see all RAM in a VM

I installed Debian Sarge (with 2.4.x kernel) on VMware ESXi in a  
virtual machine with 2GB RAM. It looks like Linux only sees 900MB of  
memory (according to top, vmstat and /proc/meminfo). Does anyone know  
why this would be happening and how I can fix it? Do I need to compile  
different options into the kernel? Thanks.
