Unlike Windows XP (which originally had, but later removed the feature
due to buggy drivers), any modern 32-bit Linux distro should support and
use PAE, a CPU feature that allows use of more than 32-bits-worth/4GB of
RAM. (Enabling PAE is in fact required on the x86 architecture for
supporting no-execute pages).

This doesn't allow for use of more than 4GB of RAM per process (unless
you're running some sort of enterprise database that uses special
techniques) but it does mean all your RAM gets used.
