4 GB memory limit is for guests only. The Host Kernel can access up to 64 GB with the linux kernel's PAE.
You can run 64bits VM if the host CPU has VMX support.

VMware server is only 32-bit, even if you install it inside a 64bit host system. Because of that, guests are limited to 4GB of memory anyway.
You can run 64bit guests if your processor has the intel VMX extension (superplan 2008, EG, MG and HG servers)

Okay. So if i understand this right. it is possible but with limitations like the
4 gig mem ? And you can also run 64bits VM's. yes ?

Has OVH Vmware distribution only for 32 bit systems ? Maybe i would like to get a bigger server a 64 bit system. Or can you use the 32 bit version also for 64 bit servers ? I am not sure, will a 64 bit system then goes in 32 mode ?
