Not surprising. A 32 bit OS can only address up to 4GB of memory, because of this a 32 bit copy of windows XP usually only gives you access to about 3GB of memory, the remainder is lost to system addressing and addressing for devices on the board. If you want to be able to use all 5GB of memory you put in your system you will need to move to a 64 bit OS, i would suggest Windows 7 64 bit over XP 64 bit.
