Boot.ini for Exchange 2003 Enterprise

Here is what my Boot.ini looks like.
"[boot loader]
timeout=30
default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windows Server 2003, Enterprise" /fastdetect /3GB /Userva=3030 /NOPAE /MAXMEM=4096 /NoExecute=OptOut"

I am wondering if I should remove the "NOPAE" switch or if there are other changes that I SHOULD make? I currently have 8GB of ram, but as you can see I am only utilizing 4GB. The server is a Quad Xeon prosessor HP DL580 running 2k3 Server Enterprise Ed SP1\Exchange2k3 Enterprise SP1. Thanks!!!
