The memory limitation is built into 32 bit OS's - so you'll never be able to get the OS to recognize all 4 gB. FWIW - my 32 bit Vista system would recognize 3.26 gB of the RAM when it was running.
Since you have an 32 bit OEM copy of Vista, it's unlikely that you'd have access to the 64 bit version. Most Vista installations are determined (in part) by the product key - so if you don't have a product key for a 64 bit version you'll have to purchase one.
FWIW - My 64 bit Vista recognizes all 4 gB of RAM - but I didn't notice a great deal of improvement when I switched to 64 bit.
