What about with PAE and/or other extension schemes?
Doesn't help with the KVM requirement, and still only provides a 4GB address space for any single process.
If it's just memory requirements, can I assume if I don't have a $hit load of storage and billions of files it will work "ok" with 4GB of RAM? I guess I'm just making sure there isn't some bug that only exists on the i386 architecture?
ZFS should work on i386. As far as I know there aren't any killer bugs that are architecture specific, but I'm no expert. Unless your aim is to learn about ZFS I personally wouldn't bother with it on an i386 system: you'll almost certainly get a lot better performance and a lot less grief out of UFS under those conditions.
