Have a SBS2003 server that only shows 2.554GB of the 4GB I would like it to see.  Microsoft Knowledgebase article #823440 says you do not need the /3GB switch for SBS2003 and that you should not even use it for Exchange Server Computers that are Active Directory DCs which SBS is.  Anyone know how to resolve this issue?

    It's not recommended that you use the /3GB switch for SBS and using that switch would not resolve your problem anyhow.

    Try using just the /PAE switch in your boot.ini
