Your machine is fine. The limit for a 32 bit kernel is ~3.6G. Try
running a 32 bit hugemem kernel or an smp kernel that supports over 4G
(32 bit RHEL4 smp kernels do) and you will see all your ram. But there
will be a small penalty for addressing over 32 address space. That's
what 64 bit kernels are for.
