How to allocate Ram between Mac and Windows

    Hi there
    I'm running Parallels Desktop 6 on my MacBook, mainly so I can run Dragon NaturallySpeaking 11 professional (speech recognition software) on Windows 7.

    Currently, RAM is shared 50/50 between Macintosh OS and Windows, ie 2GB to Mac/4GB to Windows 7. However I use Windows 7 most of the time, and as Dragon is RAM hungry software, and working rather sluggishly, I would like to allocate more RAM to Windows 7 (1 GB for Mac/3 GB for Windows 7).
    Would appreciate any advice as to how this can be done.

    Mac details:
    Mac OSX V10.6.8
    processor 2.4 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
    memory 4 GB
