Maximum Memory Supported -- W8000 ??

Does anyone know how much RAM can be installed in a W8000? It has support for 8 RIMMs. I have 2GB installed now, but would like to go to the maxiumum that the system can deal with, which I'm hoping is 4GB.

I'm running Windows XP 32-bit and realize that not all of the 4GB can be used, but will the BIOS see it and how much will Windows XP be able to use?

I looked though all of the documentation on the W8000 on the HP site, and I found what appears to be all of their manuals and data sheets for the W8000. Nevertheless, I can't find a statement in any of these documents that alludes to an upper limit for the RAM in GB.

The manuals are here. I don't find any info on memory in them. http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bizsupport/TechSupport/DocumentIndex.jsp?contentType=SupportManual〈=en&cc=us&docIndexId=64180&taskId=101&prodTypeId=12454&prodSeriesId=322279 Here is what www.crucial.com has to say about it. http://www.crucial.com/store/listparts.aspx?model=Evo%20Workstation%20W8000 The BIOS should see 4 GB the 32 bit OS will only see between 3 and 3.5 GB. What you need is the actual specification sheet which appears to have been taken off of the site. You can try a google search for the specs.
