I have a feeling this is a FAQ, but I couldn't find it..

How much RAM is linux supposed to be able to handle? I was trying to
run 2.1.91 on a x86-box with 2GB RAM, and it crashed (rebooted)
instantly (after LILO loaded the kernel) with mem=2048M and
mem=1024M. It runs fine with mem=512M. I haven't tried anything
between 512 and 1024 yet.

Are there any plans to support 4GB RAM (on x86)? And/or more than 4GB?
I've been told the architecture supports 64GB maximum.
