The absolute limit on Win XP Pro (32-bit version) is 4 gig but quite often there are issues that arise when going even above 2 gigs; some of these may relate to the manner in which the motherboard allocates "holes" in the memory map for the video card and other hardware.  Microsoft says that if you want more than 4gigs, and sometimes even to get to 4 gigs, you have to use the 64-bit version of Windows (a suggestion which, however valid it may be, has it's own share of issues for many if not most users).
