Can VMWare ESX you by the 4 GB Limit says you can...

The conventional Citrix multiprocessor system must assign the same 4GB pool of kernel
memory to the activities of all processors present. Without kernel memory, much and

A single, physical machine with four processors and four single-CPU virtual machines offers the kernel, user, and applications a 16GB limit, whereas the conventional system has only 4GB.
