Is is safe to install the XEN Kernel on a server with 12 GB RAM and a i7 Quadcore CPU?

MemTotal:     12462952 kB

The reason I'm asking is this.

Debian-50-lenny-32-minimal:/proc# uname -r

Is a "bigmem kernel" necessary to adress the complete range of the 12 GB?


bigmem = PAE which will allow you to use more then 4GB with 32-bit.

It's not the best idea but it should work.
