That machine has a total of 96gb of RAM installed. The reason there is so much 
free is because we are still using a 32-bit version of the Oracle database 
server so the SGA can't go over the 2gb limit. The upgrade to 64-bit 9i will 
probably happen within two months and then we will be able to increase it greatly.
