3GB Switch w/ NVIDIA

I had this issue. The way I understand it is that you have to back it
down just bit, to a 2.9GB switch. I think you need XP svc pack 3 for
this to work.


The following sample Boot.ini file demonstrates how to use the new
switch to tune a computer to allocate 2,900 MB of User-mode virtual
memory and 1,196 MB of Kernel-mode virtual memory. This increases the
available kernel space by 172 MB:
[Boot Loader]
Timeout=30
Default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINNT
[Operating Systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows Server
2003" /fastdetect /3GB /Userva=2900

Just out of curiosity, what do "ya'll" think of the last line of that
boot.ini file looking like this:

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows Server
2003" /fastdetect /3GB

This is on a HP xw8600 running XP sp3, Xeon X5260 @3.33GHz and 4gig of
ram.

ALSO, my "other" system is an HP xw8400 running XP sp2, Xeon 5160
@2.99GHz and 3gig of ram with it's last line of the boot.ini file looks
like this:

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINNT="Microsoft Windows Server
2003" /fastdetect /3GB /PAE /userva=2900

What is the difference? Should the first system also have the
userva=2900 set? What does the "/PAE" do in the later case?

Thanks in advance...
