    are you 64bit, are you using more than 4gn of ram , need just a little bit more info

    more than 4gb look at pae
    64bit you should be ok with
    2.6.18-164.11.1.el5

    go 64-bit version for sure. It is stable and efficient.

    in 64-bit you only need to do : yum upgrade kernel

    on 32-bit with PAE you need: yum upgrade kernel-PAE

    to see if your kernel is PAE, type:

    uname -a and look for kernel version whether it has PAE at the end or not.

    thanks "hicom" will go for 64bit

    I am currently not running PAE

    I'll be moving a couple of servers coming weekend so it would all be 64 bit now onwards.
