    It's not hard at all. Just recompile the kernel and set the High Memory Support to 64 GB.

    I'd guess that is different from distro to distro, but I don't think any of them uses the 36 GB option. It's located under Processor Type and Features.

    Default for Red hat is 4.0 The setting I think is Under general settings. Just vi the .config file in /usr/src/kernel verson. Really easy to find
