I have read from several threads here that centos 32-bit can only read RAM up to 3 GB. I know that is true for Windows Vista 32-bit, but I am not so sure with CentOS.
I checked this with my server provider and they told me that CentOS 32bit can handle up to 16GB of RAM. So which is true?
Just to add, according to my provider, 32 bit operating systems can handle up to 64GB of memory by compiling a PAE kernel. Is that true? How do I know if my 32-bit server can really read and use all my RAM. I have RAM of 8 GB in my server.

Reason: addition about PAE
