Billy: In general, memory addresses are hexadecimal numbers that the microprocessor assigns to physical memory during the boot process in order to keep track of the memory it can access (memory mapping). 32-bit architecture allows more memory addresses so: more devices operating at the same time, multitasking, and faster data transfer. 32-bit applications' data lives directly above 32-bit applications and that above a higher portion of the os somewhere out there in so-called "extended memory" (1024K-8MB, I believe). Hope this will help. Will you please try to solve my post above yours? Thanks.
