First off you are best at rebuilding the kernel yourself. The options
you need are:

Processor type and features:

--> High Memory Support --> 64 GB

--> Symmetric multi-processing support.

If kernel building seems to be too risky for you then you need to
install:

rpm -ivh kernel-smp-2.4.18-3.i686.rpm

This should give you the SMP support but I cannot say whether the entire
memory is going to be recognized. I guess both will but try.
