Why does Ubuntu only show 3GB of RAM?
8 GB RAM on 64 bit processor using 32 bit Ubuntu

On 3 19 2012 I installed 4 GB of memory on my 32 bit pc, which is the maximum memory that my motherboard will except.

When I checked the BIOS it showed 4 GB.

When I went into Ubuntu 11.10 and looked at the memory settings, it showed 3 GB.

How can I get Ubuntu 11.10 to see all 4 GB of memory.
