32-Bit-Server-OS and PAE...do you also need a mainboard that supports memory remapping?

Experts,
to me it seems as if the answer is yes. I installed 8 GB RAM and the Bios POST correctly reports 8 GB. But although the /PAE-switch is set in the boot.ini, our 2003 server x86 (standard, sp2) only sees 4 GB after rebooting.

I saw newer mainboards that have this feature, the board of the server hasn't got it. Is this the problem?

You will need to have the enterprise version to support the PAE switch.  Standard version only supports 4GB of memory
