The non-volatile configuration memory is the NVRAM where startup-config is stored. It is separate from DRAM and from flash.

Your router has 8 MB of DRAM and 4 MB of flash. The PCMCIA is your flash not more RAM.

What gets me confused is the line

8K bytes of non-volatile configuration memory.

what is that?
