That's normally what I do. However, I don't need to restart the computer in
order to be able to address more than 500mb. I just need  to restart Stata.
This makes me think that this can be a problem with Stata, not the operating
system. I was able to reproduce the problem: I was appending 300 files into
one. My default memory size for Stata (250mb) wasn't enough, so Stata
returned the message that it didn't have enough memory. So I cleared Stata
and tried to increase the memory allocated to Stata and I the error message
that the op sys wouldn't allow it. I restarted Stata and everything was
fine: I could alocate 900mb with no problem.

I've found that the solution to 90% of all computer problems is to reboot
the machine.  My guess is memory gets fragmented as you use different
routines, limiting the size of the blocks Stata can allocate.
