How much memory can NT support?

A. NT is a 32-bit operating system which means it can support 2^32 amount of memory (4 Gigs). However NT splits memory into 2 parts, 2 gigs for the programs and 2 gigs for the Operating System. There are known to be some problems when having more than 64MB even in NT4.0, please see Q117373
