The 32-bit generic .i686 kernel sees what the BIOS tells it is available. If you google it, you'll find a couple of good explanations as to why 32-bit generic .i686 kernels don't see (or can't use) all 4GB, it is usually something less (like 3.5 or 3.75 GB, depends on the motherboard). In order to use *all* 4GB of RAM (or more), you need to use a PAE enabled kernel instead of the generic .i686 kernel.

I understand that the .i686 kernels do have PAE enabled, not least
because it’s needed for NX/XD to work.

Hope this helps,

James.

The 'kernel' package does not have PAE enabled. You need to install the kernel-PAE package if you want NX/XD or 4G+ of RAM.
