How to set this up is so poorly described in the AE manual that I've actually filed it as a bug. It only says:
See the Microsoft website for details.I spent 30 minutes searching until I finally found out how to do this, which I thought I'd share with you:
Video tutorial on using more than 2 GB of RAM with After Effects on Windows XP
The limit under Windows XP is 3 GB of RAM (that is per instance of AE, so you can easily start more than one if you have Windows XPx64, but plain XP only supports a total of 4 GB of RAM for the whole system.)
On Mac OS X AE can use up to 3.5 GB of RAM, and on 64-bit Windows XP each instance of After Effects can use up to 4GB of RAM with no special configuration.
Here's more background information for the geeky:

I just found out there's a new Propeller Chip that's far more powerful and can do multi-processing, so I expect the robot builders will go crazy with this one.
This time it's about fluid simulations algoritms and software created by 100 people during the course of a year. Perhaps they didn't know about the Make Ocean menu item in Maya. ;-)

I'd love to try it out for a project I'm currently working on where I need to cut up huge satellite images into 2.048 by 2.048 layer tiles in order for After Effects to be able to use the images in fly-bys.
