How big can Java-heap be on a 64-bit Linux


I am having this problem; and that is that I can only assign 2,5 GB Java Heap on a Xeon 64-bit system with 6 GB of memory. The problem is that I am not using a 64-bit distro of Mandrake at the moment, so I guess it is the reason why I can only gain 2,5 GB Java Heap on a system with 6 GB memory installed.

But if I upgrade to a 64-bit distro how much Java Heap can I assign then? And on what distro would you suggest it should be?
I know i will need to upgrade the JVM as well, so it can run 64-bit also, and what is there of possibilities there.

Thank you and best regards
