Memory limitations with FC6?


I have two Dell servers with 8G ram each, but the OS is only showing 3.2G. Is there a limit to how much ram FC sees and uses, or did I miss something during the install?

OK, so it seems the 32 bit kernel is maxed out at 4Gb ram even though there is physically 8Gb on the server with 4 CPU's. Going to 64 bit kernel should show all 8GB when I am in the system monitor or CLI Top? Is there any other way to utilize the other 4Gb ram with 32bit OS? This is a Database server.
