Windows 2003 Ent. x86 only seeing 3.25GB of RAM when is 8GB instal

I have a Windows 2003 Enterprise Server 32 bit running on a HP DL380 G5. The
server used to only have 4Gb of RAM and at which point Windows only saw
3.25GB which is normal, but I just upgraded it to 8GB of RAM and Windows
still only shows 3.25 GB of RAM installed and the BIOS shows 8GB installed
when booting. How do I get it to see that I upgrade the RAM to 8GB?

My bad, forgot with 32 bit you have to add /PAE to boot.ini file. I'm used
to 64bit just picking it right up.
