SQL 2008 R2 on 64Bit Memory Configuration BEst Practice

Hi All,

Could someone provide me with the best way to configure a Windows 2008 R2 64 bit on an HP Proliant DL380p Gen8 server with SQL Server 2008 R2?
It's a dedicated database server with 32GB RAM that is, no other applications will be on the server and it will be running most of the SQL services. I was of the opinion that I could just leave the Page File to be determined by the System but not too sure about that. As a reluctant dba (came about as a result of the last guy leaving) I'd be grateful if someone could point me in the right direction.
