Q - question

AutoCAD reports FATAL ERROR: Out of memory - shutting down

A - answer Make sure you have enough RAM, enough virtual memory (swap size) and plenty of free disk space on your swap disk.

When working with really large DWG drawings we would recommend using the 64-bit version of AutoCAD (on a 64-bit OS) and an adequate workstation.

But in many cases, the "/3GB" mode of the plain 32-Windows will help to increase the available memory (see the Tips).
