Dell Poweredge 2650, more than 4 gigs ram?

This question is not answered

I have a Dell Poweredge 2650, which supports upto 12 gigs of ram, but is a 32-bit system. I have mine running Server 2003 Enterprise with 5 gigs ram, however, being a 32-bit OS on 32-bit processors, it can't address more than 3.74 gigs of ram, even with PAE enabled. 

I'm wondering now, if it supports a max of 12 gigs of ram, how in the heck do you address it all, if I can't even address 5 gigs?
