...more RAM? Always more RAM?

Reality check please, this is an i386 Machine with 2 Gbytes.
It has two of 3 sockets polluted with RAM Modules (1G), there is not that
much Space to give it more RAM.

i386 is a supported architecture as far as I know, ok it where nice to
have in i386 with 8 Gigs of RAM but there are not much motherboards out
here that would support this..

This remebers me to microsofts attemts to write Software, always more RAM
and more CPU to fasten up endless loops..
