XP Pro okay with 8 GB of RAM?

Kind of an awkward thread title, but...

My main OS on this computer is Vista 64-bit, so I am able to use all 8 GB of RAM on this machine. However, for a minority of programs that I use occasionally that aren't Vista compatible, I was going to set up an XP Pro 32-bit dual boot on this computer. I know that it won't recognize RAM past 4 GB, but will XP have any problems with more than 4 GB of RAM installed on my computer, or will it just ignore it peacefully?

Are there any other issues with an XP SP2 disc installing/running on newer computers?

Thanks...
