    We have a new mac pro running the latest version of Bootcamp with XP Pro. XP reports only 2 Gigs of ram. OS X sees 4 GBs. Has any one seen this?

    Yes, there is a program to solve the issue. I'm unsure what it is unfortunatelt but wait for the rest of the community...

    you could try editing the boot.ini and adding the /3gb switch to it

    On my windows pc with 4gb of ram I still only see 3gb of ram in task manager even with the switch on.

    this link should help - you want the bit at the top about xp pro :)
