I am making my own game server for a MMORPG called, Lineage 2. Now i need to edit my BOOT.INI . just need to add /3GB at the end of

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Micro soft Windows XP Professional" /fastdetect /NoExecute=OptIn

This is mine:

multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(1)\WINDOWS="Micro soft Windows XP Professional" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect/3gb

and I just added the 3gb like you want and it saved fine for me. Why do you need this?

Okay if you are trying to edit your boot.ini you need to do this.

Start>Run>Cmd
From there get to the root of the drive. Either by cd.. or cd root.
From there type in edit boot.ini which will bring you to a notepad which will allow you to save and edit your boot.ini files.
