Sorry about the RE: Fw: Re thing going in the subject line...I'll watch
out for that.

The server actually has 8GB of RAM in it, because I initially did go by
this calculation (7936MB total).  However, being a 32 bit environment, I
noticed that the RAM is capped at 4GB :( .  So, my plan is to get down
to a 30:1 ratio instead (4096MB).
