I ended up compiling a 2.4.31 kernel from source with the appropriate
settings for the particular hardware as well as HIGHMEM and it now see's
all the memory:

#~> free
         total      used       free     shared    buffers    cached
Mem:   3105300     252836    2852464      0       8676       34916
-/+ buffers/cache: 209244    2896056
Swap:   999592          0     999592

Thanks again for you help.
