I heard somewhere that a server running Windows Server 2003 32 bit can be made to allocate additional RAM (above 4GB) to external processes (i.e. Terminal Services). Does anyone know how this would be done? Thanks in advance.

No, that's not possible unless you upgrade to W2k3 EE or the 64bit version.
W2k3 Standard 32bit is limited to 4GB, no whens, ifs, buts, or workarounds.
