Hi,
I remember there was an option in the kernel configuration about
having more than 4 GB, something like "bigmem" or "highmem", but I
can't find it anymore...
Perhaps you could find more googling a little bit...
However the limit for the 32 bit architecture should be 3 GB, not 4
GB, so you have the right kernel and distribution "flavor".
You can also try more "live" distributions, then copying their kernel,
initrd and modules if you find one that works well...
HTH
