Question:  10.19. At the Start of Booting: Memory tight

This means that you have an extra-large kernel, which means that Linux has to do some special memory-management magic to be able to boot itself from the BIOS. It isn't related to the amount of physical memory in your machine. Ignore the message, or compile a kernel containing only the drivers and features you need. ("How To Upgrade/Recompile a Kernel.")
