How do I turn on the Physical Address Extension switch?

Hello, i am having a similar issue to some inquiries regarding PAE and would like to know how to add the " /PAE" switch during bootup. Do I need to go into the boot.ini file and simply add /PAE?

Awesome. I just added /PAE at the end of the boot.ini file and I'm still showing 3.24 GB rather than 5GB. I now know that XP can only read up to 4GB. Is there a way to allocate the rest of the RAM?
I am running XP SP3.

Thanks again.
