Just a note to show that the claims of Michael Blasnik, Roberto Mura,
and Jeph Herrin's claims can coexist.  I have access to 3 XP
computers.  A 3 yr old desktop has 3GB of physical ram but would allow
me only up to 1100mb (just like you), a 10-mth old laptop has 1GB of
physical ram and the max I can get out of it is 900mb, these 2
computers both have had the hotfix installed and no change is
observed.  And then come a 4 yr old deskstop with 1GB physical memory
and I'd never had any problem with setting mem to 1200mb (although it
used to crash 5 times a day in its previous life as a Windows98 SE
when I set mem to 700-800mb).

This Q pops up on Statalist from time to time and the usual solution
recommended is to switch to Unix.

I just wanted to clarify that the MS hotfix actually does work --at least it
worked for me and you provide no real indication that it didn't work for
you.  The hotfix resolved problems of max memory allocations dropping to
about 700m-900m after installing SP2.  The hotfix brought this back up to
the usual ~1.2GB, which is consistent with what could be done prior to SP2.
