Check the old posting by Scotteq here:

That's fairly old information. I think it originated on an Asus page that's no longer there

Anyway it says you not only need XP x64 but a motherboard with a "memory controller which supports memory swap functionality"

If your motherboard has that capability then the problem is elsewhere. If not you need to drop the ram to 3 gig or less. That might explain why your system is booting slow (your previous thread).
