If the network is reasonably sparse 3000 nodes shouldn't be a problem - for example the network on slides 36 and 37 at http://vlado.fmf.uni-lj.si/pub/networks/doc/mix/GDaSNA.pdf has almost 6000 nodes. For a dense network you can have problems with the available space in your computer memory. Look in Pajek at number of arcs/edges in the report to Info/Network/General Try to close all other programs except Gsview/Ghostscript; or try everything on the computer with larger memory. The other possibility is to reduce the size of your network: replace parallel links with a single link (with sum of values), delete some less important links - links with value lower than a selected threshold, ...
