Question from a Linux Fetus

I'd like to move over to Linux from Windows and do some Audio Production. Specifically, I'd like to use Kontakt by Native Instruments as a VST or whatever for a MIDI sequencer, and VST-support for 64 Studio requires the 32-bit version, correct? (http://www.64studio.com/howto_vst) I currently have 2 GB of RAM, but I'd like to buy another 2 GB RAM stick and use more than the 32-bit limitation of 3 GB or so of RAM (I have a 512 MB graphics card). So I was wondering if the 32-bit version of 64 Studio supports Physical Address Extension or whatever so that I can use the full 4 GB of RAM and my video card? When I click 'My Computer' in Windows XP Professional, under 'Computer:' it says: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU T7600 @ 2.33 GHz 977 MHz, 2.00 GB of RAM Physical Address Extension So I imagine that my processor supports PAE and if the 32-bit version of 64 Studio supports PAE, then I can use 4 GB of RAM + my video card? I tried searching the forums for "PAE" and "Physical Address Extension" but I didn't find anything noteworthy. Thank you, in advance!
