Got more than a gig of RAM and 32-bit Linux? Here's how to use it

Since you are mentioning other distros, the default pclinuxos 2007 kernel, old that it is supports 4gig:

i686 32bit linux kernel (4GB)
The kernel package contains the Linux 2.6.18.8.tex5 kernel, the core of your
PCLinux operating system. It is optimised for the i686 cpu arch and supports up to
and including 4GB of system memory (via highmem). It defaults to using the 'CFQ'
scheduler, 'smp' support enabled and is compiled with kernel preemption disabled.

There are lots of other kernels available.
