Are you running the i386 version of 6.2-RELEASE? If so, you will need
to enable PAE (recompile the kernel with options PAE), or install the
amd64 version of 6.2 instead. Note that there is a performance hit
with PAE and other downsides, so you should probably go for the amd64
version for optimal performance.
