Do we have PAE? 
PAE would be nice :) I have 5 gig ram Opteron machine to play/work with :)

If not, can a 32 bit processor even use 2+4GB? I recall 
that some year(s) ago, people were adviced not to use more than 4GB 
totall memory on FreeBSD. Could be wrong, though.
BTX problems probably. If you can go further, kernel will just ignore 
things over 4gigs.
