    when looking at the system properties via windows server 2003 R2 sp2 it
    reports 3.75GB of RAM, but the BIOS reports the full 4GB (4096MB)?

  2. If you're using W2003 Standard, this is normal. You can use all your RAM
    plus more if you use Enterprise or W2008 x64.

    thanks for the reply. It is w2k3 Enterprise R2 sp2. ?? PAE is only for
    memory over 4GB right? so I wouldn't need to enable that? any other
    thoughts?
