Dear all,

I am interested in using Mathematica on a high spec PC running Linux.  In 
particular I would like to know if it is possible for Mathematica to access 
>2GB of memory, since I understand there is a 2GB per process limitation.

If this is not possible directly would it be possible to use gridMathematica 
either over a cluster or on a single machine with multi-processors and a 
lot of RAM?  Otherwise would switching architecture to Sun Sparc or a 
similar 64bit architecture help?

Many thanks in advance,

Edward Grace
