Take a look at a thread from January starting at this point:
Basically the constraint you see is due to how Linux sets up the 4GB
address space on 32-bit i386 hardware. If you need more than 1.9GB on
2.4.x, it's not too hard to change a couple constants in the kernel to
allow somewhat more. Feel free to email me for more details if it is
not clear after reading the above thread.
