Max RAM supported x86 FC9

I tried to search around but didn't find anything specific so I thought I would ask the community.

I installed FC9 x86 onto my desktop with 4GB of ram.

If I do a free -m it yeilds

Total used
Mem: 2649 747

cat /proc/meminfo shows

MemTotal: 2712148 kb

Do I need to use a different kernel or the x64 edition to get the OS to see all 4GB.

No. You need your enable 4GB RAM support via your motherboard. Restart your computer and go to BIOS setting by holding delete button.

I had been running x64 Vista Ultimate with full access to 4GB before reloading with FC9.
