Yes thats true.
I would like to pull the memory later this PM and replace it one
stick at a time and see what is reported.  From my machine at the
office, I know that with 2x500 on the board, you see 1032440 kB
which is only 41Meg from 1 073 741 824 . {of course I could ask
whats it doing with 41Meg...).

Let me rephrase that.

In LINUX, the two SATA disks are referred to as /dev/sda and /dev/sdb .
On the root statement for GRUB the first is referred to as /dev/hd0

I will assume that the root= on the kernel line would want /dev/sda, 
but I have yet to change it from the root=LABEL=/1 syntax.

Just 'kinda ugly.
It would be nice if both did or didnot do the SCSI emulation in the
disk names...
