more virtual machine help

OK, so I was installing Windows XP Service Pack 3 in a virtual machine using QEMU, but even though I gave it three gigs of memory, it got part way thorough the install process and then said not enough memory. What's up?

I'm using this tutorial, and I did everything it said.

Here's a pic of the problem.

Have you tried virtualbox ? It's GPL, (use the closed source version if you need USB support on your guest.) and has worked trouble free for me.
