Just a quick question for the experts!!!!!!
I have a IBM X366  box with 8GB RAM on it. It's running  Lotus Notes.
The boot.ini file has the following entry..

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windows Server 2003, Enterprise" /fastdetect /pae /3gb /NoExecute=OptOut

Does this mean that I am throttling the Lotus notes or any other application to use 3GB of memory out of the 8 GB available?

A quick response will really be appreciated.
