Have 4 GB of memory on 32-bit laptop running Ubuntu -- any way to use it?

I have 4 GB of memory on a 32-bit laptop (Lenovo T61, in case it matters) running Ubuntu 9.10. Is there any way to make use of it all? Ubuntu only sees 3 GB, of course. Is there any way I can utilize the last GB of memory? Thanks!

"You should NOT use the server kernel unless you are running a server. To use all of your laptop's 4 GB install the PAE version of the generic kernel with:

sudo apt-get install linux-image-generic-pae"
