 ... sorry to butt in here ...

I have a dual Xeon 2.4Ghz server with 4Gb of RAM installed.  The BIOS
tells me it is all there, but KDE's control center tells me that there
is only 3.32Gb RAM.

Do I need to be running the BIGMEM kernel?  what is the cutoff above
which the BIGMEM kernel is necessary?
