hi again.... working on a very big model with lots of data, and now I can't render it anymore, maya (2008) crashes during the export process. Computer is a quad-core (at 3.4 Ghz) with 3Gb ram. Checking the task manager shows maya is using 1.1 Gb ram and 1.1 Gb virtual memory during the crash. I know that usually it's suppose to be enough but I get "fatal error" again and again... what could be the problem ? thanx !

Win xp 64 will fix your problem

It could be you are using Windows 32 bits, windows 32 bits only manage 1.6gb per application, you can increase this 1.6 up to 3gb in Windows32bits editing the boot.ini file.
