Least cost path problems

Hi all-  I am hoping someone can help me with a problem we are having when calculating a least cost path from a 30 meter DEM.  When running the Path Distance tool, we are getting the error 10005, "unable to allocate memory, Path Distance mapping failed".  Memory is not an issue with the 2 machines this has been tested on.  Does this have something to do with the cell data type being single integer rather than floating point?  I changed the NoData values to 0, and that did not change anything.

Any ideas??  Thanks!
