Thank you for your report. We have updated the System Administration Guide for
Red Hat Enterprise Linux 4 and revised the kernel package overview with the
correct memory support. You can find the updated section in question at the
following URL:

http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/enterprise/RHEL-4-Manual/sysadmin-guide/ch-kernel.html

Thanks again for your report.
