I would like to install SQL Server 2008 on a 32 bit machine.

I have read that it is possible with the SQL Server Enterprise edition to increase the memory over the 4GB?

Is this true? Any documentation? I couldn't find anything solid from Microsoft or anywhere else reputable except SQL server forum posts!

Thanks all for any help
