"High memory support" must be enabled in the kernel in order to make it use of memories>1G. If you don't have highmem support, you'll need to reconfigure your kernel. I don't know if Debian's default kernel has support for this.
If you do have highmem support, and the kernel still doesn't see your memory, you may use the "mem" boot parameter, spcifying the amount of memlory you have, for example:
Be sure not to specify more than you have, since Linux will obey your orders and will blindly try to use the amount of memory specified, resulting in a kernel panic if you have less than you said.
