    You'll need switches that can cope with this also.

    But when it comes to upgrading OS to 64bit, they will see more than the 3GB or so. But in saying that, our server is 32bit and see's 4GB. hummmmmmm....

    I think 2003 enterprise x32 sees more then the 3.25gb standard will see, but i could be wrong

    It does. You have to enable PAE. It basically swaps memory banks so it only sees 4Gb at a time but uses all available Ram (beyond 4Gb). Standard edition doesn't support PAE

    If you wish to use PAE with MSSQL, you will have to tweak some settings in MSSQL also - RE: MSSQL 2005 & 6GB RAM (Posted by Samir Ibrahim) - www.foxite.com - The Home Of The Visual FoxPro Experts

    That link gives more details.
