Maximum memory reported by /proc/meminfo in vanilla 2.4.26

Hi all,

Given an 8 GB RAM, what is the maximum of the memory I should expect
reported from /proc/meminfo ?
I'm using 2.4.26 Vanilla

Right now I can see ~3.3GB when cat-ing /proc/meminfo on that specific machine.

The kernel is not compiled with CONFIG_HIGHMEM64G, I just want to know if the value I get when catting meminfo is OK.

Thanks in advance,

# cat /proc/meminfo
