I am guessing now, but I would suggest you need at least 4-8 times as much memory as the size of your file, especially if using FOP to do page numbering and things like this.
It depends. Page numbering in itself is *not* the problem, the problem are forward references. See FAQ: http://xml.apache.org/fop/faq.html#faq-N10139 There are a few more memory leaks not mentioned there, but they should not occur in reports (well, links may be of some importance: they may lock large amounts of memory until the page sequence is completely processed).
I would also suggest the Linux is likely to be more efficient than Windows (at least it's likely to offer better memory management and have a smaller footprint).
While Linux has same advantages over Win2K in the areas mentioned, this does not mean the Linux JDKs are more efficient than their Windows counterparts. I made some observations which are more favorable for Windows, but YMMV.
