    It seems when I go into system preferences in XP sp3 it is only saying there is 3 gigs of ram and not 4 gigs. In beautiful leopard it is correctly displaying 4 gigs of ram.

    Any tips, tricks, or hints?!?
    Thanks for you time guys.

    Get a 64-bit version of Windows. 32-bit can only address 3.3GB.
