Don't bother. According to that KB article, the /3gb switch only shrinks the kernel space from 2GB to 1GB, so that programmers can make sure their device drivers work in that mode, but it doesn't actually increase the user space from 2GB to 3GB unless you're running Advanced Server. So it won't help. But what are you (or whoever the original poster was) trying to accomplish? Give a single application more virtual address space to run in, or give the entire system more physical RAM to run in? If the former, then Win2K Advanced Server would be necessary, and it would be able to do this even if you didn't have that much physical memory, since it's virtual memory that's being repartitioned, not physical memory. If that latter, I'm pretty sure that Win2K Pro can make use of the full 4GB of RAM, which will be shared among all programs in the system, including the kernel, even though a single program can't use more than 2GB. -- Ciao, Paul D.
