I am running Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise Edition, using IIS, and SQL Server 2000 Enterprise Edition.  It as a 6 month old Dell server running 2 quad core processors with 8GB of RAM.  I have not changed any entries to the boot.ini or with SQL Server to take advantage of the memory.  I am looking for the best way to utilize the hardware in the machine????  I am somewhat familiar with the /3gb option and a little with PAE and AWE through researching.  What is the best configuration to utilize the hardware in this server?
