PE4400 doesn't seem to see all 4gb

Hello,
I recently installed 4x512mb RAM into a 4400 with 4x512, maxing it out. 
When I run `free` I get this:
              total       used       free     shared    buffers     
cached
Mem:       3818388     139360    3679028          0      21188      
46572
-/+ buffers/cache:      71600    3746788
Swap:      2032212          0    2032212

I think this should be 4 294 967 296 for the total.
I have enabled the kernel options below that I thought were needed:

CONFIG_HIGHMEM64G=y
CONFIG_HIGHMEM=y
CONFIG_X86_PAE=y
CONFIG_HIGHIO=y

can anyone offer suggestions as to why there is that much of difference?
Thanks.

-Sean
