64 bit SQL 2005 Memory

P: n/a
I have two servers running SQL 2005.
1. Windows Server 2003 x32 with SQL 2005 Enterprise x32 with 3GB memory
2. Windows Enterpise 2003 x64 with SQL 2005 Enterprise x64 with 8GB

Using taskmgr.exe my 32 bit machine shows 700mb being used by
sqlservr.exe, which I expect.
However, my 64 bit machine shows sqlservr.exe using 27 mb, which seems
really low. After I build my data warehouse, I see memory usage at
1.5GB on my SQL 2000 machine, so I'd expect more than 27mb used on SQL
2005 after I build my warehouse.
Additionally, taskmgr says PF Usage is 8.33 GB. Where is the missing
memory, why is SQL 2005 x64 using so little memory??
The memory configuration for the x64 server is 0 minimum and 2147483647
max KB (defaults)
Any thoughts?
