43bit OpenSUSE 12.1 use more than 4g ram?

I was wondering if its possible to get 32bit OpenSUSE 12.1 to use more than 4g of ram i have 16g the reason im switching from 64bit is because i cant compile a 32bit wine i always run into the problem listed below. I thought it would just be easier to install on 32bit

configure: error: Cannot build a 32-bit program, you need to install 32-bit development libraries.

You can using a PAE kernel, but you /may/ take a performance hit when
addressing memory over 4 GB because the request has to be done in two
parts rather than one.

Installing the 32-bit dev libraries is an easier solution than
reinstalling your entire system.

There should be an error message indicating what development library is
missing.
