I don't understand why you have chosen AMD64? You only have 2 GB memory,
which can be adressed under i386 too and you can avoid a lot of
problems. 

Today, I am not quite sure about AMD64 because with PAE (
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Physical_Address_Extension#FreeBSD), 
you have a far better opportunity to address memory above 4 GB. 

All in all, your system, your rules ;)
