    I recently installed 4GB of RAM on a Windows 2003, Std server that hosts SQL
    2000, Std. I added the /3GB switch to the boot.ini. After installing the
    memory and rebooting with the switch the OS only sees 3GB of RAM.

    Is this to be expected? If so, why?

    Kind Regards,

    You need to add the /PAE switch.
