Under 32-bit Vista or XP, you will top out at 1.5GB for any particular program. You can use the /3G switch, but your application has to be compliant with that as well, and 32-bit Mudbox is not.

RAM is cheap; Windows 7 64-bit is free to use currently. Mudbox 64-bit works wonders and gives the user massive overhead compared to 32-bit, and if you end up using Mud a lot, it's worth the upgrade to 64-bit.

Total RAM usage in a 32 bit environment I believe is limited to about 3.2GB of RAM.

The boot.ini file doesn't exist in Vista, but there's an alternative method of making 3 gigs available to apps-
