Default Re: >=3G installed crashes X server due to simplistic PCI allocation by kernel

Please ignore my previous post. Seems the BIOS was outdated. Updating it solved the problem.

The card is running fine in Windows XP btw.
Yeah, it was the same for the other group too. Maybe it is some BIOS bug that Windows is able to workaround and Linux doesn't have anything for.

I don't understand this stuff, but it's good you got it working.

Linux reserves the top 1GB for itself, windows 2GB. That probably hides the issue on windows.
Also, 99.999% of all bioses out there are tweaked only until windows boots, so no wonder it works
on win.

You talk about virtual memory here. The issue, if any, is related to physical memory.
