Hello! My question is if I can assume that the 3GB swith is on since it is in the line.  Also I would like to do this to my other servers.  What is the proper syntax for the 3GB switch.  And where do you put it in the line?  Also other than "/3GB" does anything need to proceeed this or follow this?

[boot loader]
[operating systems]
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Windows Server 2003, Enterprise" /noexecute=optout /fastdetect /redirect /3GB /userva=3030
multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(1)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Boot Mirror C: - secondary plex"
C:\="Microsoft Windows"
