With some kernel mods (BigOS Kernel or some such, been a long time) and
relinking the Oracle binary to load into an address in memory above the
2 Gig mark. This is well known and should have instructions on Metalink.
Here is one article on the memory for SGA in different Kernel configurationshttps://metalink.oracle.com/metalink/plsql/f?p=130:14:10558301721973537125::::p14_database_id,p14_docid,p14_show_header,p14_show_help,p14_black_frame,p14_font:NOT,260152.1,1,1,1,helvetica
Hope this helps,

I am having an IBM xSeries 346 Server and i have installed RedHat ES
3.0 (32-bit OS).
I am planning to install Oracle 10G Release 2.
The hardware has 8Gb RAM and Intel Xeon Processor.
According to my Database administrator, he says that if the OS is not
64-bit then the database cannot use the complete 8GB RAM.
But from my previous experience, we were having oracle 10g and we were
running on RedHat ES 3.0 (32-bit) and it was working fine.
Can you guys advice me on this...
Should i upgrade to 64-bit OS so that Oracle uses 8GB RAM ??
Thanks in advance,
