Why is this I whipped google for a while, but couldn't find an answer to my
question:
"Is the maximum size of physical memory openbsd supports 4GB?"

I found this thread in the archive:
http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=openbsd-misc&m=111118168813306&w=2
But I says it has something to do with the pci bus, is this correct for all
machines (I mean hardware side) or is it a limitation of OpenBSD?

Always curious about my favorite OS :)
