That information is not correct. Using a PAE kernel all memory is available in 
32 bit mode. And using 64 bit mode is no solution for the BIOS not making memory 
available, I have a 4GB system which will use only 2.9GB with any kernel or 
available BIOS. The BIOS in SETUP says it is taking away 1.1GB, but not why, and 
no setting corrects it.

I write this in a VM on a 32 bit machine using all 8GB of memory.
