[THIN] Re: How much Memory in servers

Hello Malcolm,

Have you read the article on Brian Madden's site regarding the 4GB limit
in Windows?  http://www.brianmadden.com/content/content.asp?ID=69  You
might check it out as it does a good job of explaining the /3gb switch.

Cole.

Have advanced and so far only have 3-4 users per box.  Is quite an
intensive
app and is one of the few ways to run it remotely.  They basically load
several gig of data into memory and manipulate it when they run a
report.
They want the quickest response time they can get.

You also need Advanced Server edition of 2000, it seems, for PAE.
Without that, you can't use more than 4Gb RAM
