ok, i guess i havet to refrase question

this is a dual cpu amd board,

under Main Memory, it says:
(4 dimm slots per processor ...)

so Q:
	can ONE process, take advantage of more than 8Gb?
btw, i had such a box last week, and run 5.4 very nicely - appart from being
a bit noisy,  which i was informed is fixed in the newer boxes :-)
