Max ram on 32-bit Windows Server 2008 Enterprise?

I have a 32-bit Windows 2008 Enterprise server and want to know if Windows can address more than 4GB of RAM.

OS: 32-bit Windows 2008 Enterprise
Mobo: HP xw8200
Chipset: E7525
Processor: two dual core 2.8 GHz Intel
RAM: four single-rank 2 GB sticks (totals 8 GBs)

This is a "can the OS support it?" question, not a "can the hardware support it?" question.

Note: Limits greater than 4 GB for 32-bit Windows assume that PAE is enabled.

Brum07 is correct you can have more memory in a Enterprise system but you are still restricted to the 32-bit memory addresse limit. You must use the PAE switch.
