For windows you are limited to 2 GB...
See Moazam Rajas' blog for details

Presumably this will be fixed with Vista...
But then I hope that M$ changes their plans
to hobble performance of OpenGL:

On Linux and Solaris we can get very close to the
4 GB barrier with the 32-bit JVM and beyond
with the 64-bit JVM.

I somehow doubt that Microsoft are going to fix this for Vista as they haven't hinted at anything of the sort. The real solution is to buy a 64-bit processor and run the 64-bit JVM.
