sqlserver sp_configure ‘max server memory’

Hi, I have SQL Server 2000 Enterprise installed on a system with Windows 2003 Server Enterprise and 8 GB of Ram. I want to have sqlserver utilize more than 2 GB of Ram. I’m unable to set ‘max server memory’ to a figure larger 2147483647. Any ideas as to why this may be?
