No all RAM is seen by Linux

I have a PowerEdge 2950 with 8 GB of RAM in it.  However, the OS (Debian 
Etch) only sees a little over 5 GB.  Running an 'omreport system summary' 
confirms this is a problem:

Total Installed Capacity   : 8192 MB
Memory Available to the OS : 5504 MB
Total Maximum Capacity     : 32768 MB
Memory Array Count         : 1

Unfortunately, I haven't had any luck at all figuring out what's causing the 
discrepancy.  Does anyone know what may cause this, or have any pointers for
