depending on the OS you may or may not see the entire 4GB RAM.

Lots of info available here on CNET re Win XP and the ram limits.

Looks like it would work, except running under the 32bit OS. Total ram would be around 3.25gb. I have a Duel Boot system myself. Windows XP Pro. 32bit, and the Windows XP Pro x64bit, With 6gb of Ram. When I power down to 32bit to run my Spysweeper once a week it shows me 3.25gb. After Spysweeper runs, I go back into x64bit.
