Good morning,

   I'm looking at some hardware solutions for a nasty
problem we have. I know that 32-bit x86 Linux has
a memory limit of 3 Gigs (3.5 with a patch) that it
can address. Is that 3 Gigs per user process or 3 Gigs
total? With the new E7500 and GC chipsets with large
amounts of memory, I'm hoping it's 3 Gigs per user
