FWIW, many 32 bit kernels these days come with PAE enabled that will
allow a 32 bit system to address up to 16GB (maybe up to 32) but IIRC
they are still limited by a 3.6GB page size.

Good luck with your extra ram.  I really need to get a system above
2GB at home.  I'm spoiled by the 512GB systems I test on at work :-)
