It's a Windows limitation: by default, Windows won't let one process take more than 2G. Add this switch to your boot.ini file, /3GB and you can take it that far. Byond that, you need to configure PAE.

Ok, my server has 32 gb memory ram, but 3gb is the top of memory that I can take?

Yes.
You have a note on MOS that explains all this issue in details.

Of course the other question is why did someone install a 32bit Operating system on a server with 32GB of memory? It should be 64bit all the way down. A lot less headaches in the long run.
