1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

My book (Kittel) says that the density of states of an ideal Bose gas is:

[tex]D(\epsilon) = V/4\pi^2 \left(2M/\hbar^2 \right)^{3/2} \epsilon^{1/2}[/tex]

I do not understand why the density of states is not identically infinity since the point of a Bose gas is that an orbital can be occupied by an unlimited number of bosons.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
