comment Can a 32-bit OS machine use up all 8GB RAM + 20GB page file?
You can't. A ramdisk still has to be created throught the OS, if the OS can't use the memory you can't create a ramdisk there either. (Unless your bios can create a ramdisk, which is rare).

Actually, the 32bits = 4GB limit was true for operating systems as well before PAE was introduced (back in 1995!). When it comes to memory limits on Windows this is a really interesting read: geoffchappell.com/notes/windows/license/memory.htm With a bit of hacking you can make a 32bits windows use more then 4GB...
