Does it appear as if the VMWare sessions are getting full access to the 
16 gig of memory?

And you didn't need to do anything special to specify a "64 bit" version 
or processor-specific version of the packages in Synaptic?  From what I 
can find, if you're able to install the 64 bit Windows as a client, it 
means you're running the 64 bit version of the server product.
