Fred said that he could not allocate nearly as much memory as I reported. Here is what my fully-updated Stata/MP4 version 10 on Mac OS X says:

. set mem 2270m

Current memory allocation
-------------------------

current memory usage
settable value description (1M = 1024k)
--------------------------------------------------------------------
set maxvar 5000 max. variables allowed 1.751M
set memory 2270M max. data space 2,270.000M
set matsize 400 max. RHS vars in models 1.254M
-----------
2,273.006M

. memory
bytes
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Details of set memory usage
overhead (pointers) 0 0.00%
data 0 0.00%
----------------------------
data + overhead 0 0.00%
free 2,380,267,520 100.00%
----------------------------
Total allocated 2,380,267,520 100.00%
--------------------------------------------------------------------
Other memory usage
set maxvar usage 1,836,513
set matsize usage 1,315,200
programs, saved results, etc. 131
---------------
Total 3,151,844
-------------------------------------------------------
Grand total 2,383,419,364


This system is running Mac OS X 10.5.4. Is yours, Fred?
I have 4 Gb of RAM on this system. I don't see why there would be such a large discrepancy between what you can allocate and what I can allocate.
