According to http://www.freebsd.org/platforms/amd64.html the Intel
Xeon (3000-sequence, 5000-sequence, and 7000-sequence) processors use
the Intel(R)64 architecture.
Therefore if your Intel Xeon is in the 3000-sequence, 5000-sequence or
7000-sequence, then you can use FreeBSD/amd64 and use the memory above
4Gb. IMHO it should be more simple and efficient than compiling a
kernel with PAE support.
