DL585 G5 with 4GB RAM - OS only sees 2GB!

I have a new Proliant DL585 G5 with two Quad-core processors. Each processor has 2GB or RAM. The System Management homepage sees that there is 4GB installed but Windows 2003 (Standard, 32bit) only sees 2GB. Has anyone seen this before? If so, anyone know how to fix it?

OS memory limitation is a fact with 32 bit operating systems but it should atleast show 3 GB.

Try adding "/PAE" without quotes to the boot.ini file.

This should be added at the end of the Operating system information line in the boot.ini file.

I know that I am intelligent, because I know that I know nothing.
