Hi, Ed: This approach works in 10.3.9, so it might be a Tiger change nobody's yet encountered.
Have you tried starting up in OS 9.x, if Tiger permits it, setting the memory, then quitting and restarting in Tiger? Also, have you checked your permissions for the application? Your current account may not have the same permissions as the account FM was installed from. Perhaps running Disk Utility to reset permissions might help. In Classic Preferences you can display a memory usage indicator for Classic applications, so you can adjust your memory allocation to match the demands of your current project. Also, at least in 10.3.9, after you type in the memory setting value, close the Info panel immediately, then reopen it to make sure that your value is entered correctly. I've found that it's easy to unintentionally delete what you've just entered.
