I have a product that uses the 32-bit OEM Version of Sybase Anywhere 12.0
I have dedicated 64-bit Servers, Both Windows and Linux Available, with extensive amounts of ram to host the 32-bit Sybase Anywhere 12.0 Server.
Is there anything I can do to make use of the large amounts of Physical RAM despite only having the 32-bit Version of Sybase?
On Windows, the 32-bit database server using a regular cache will have access to almost 4GB of memory. I believe the same is true of Linux.
On Windows, you can also use an AWE cache to take advantage of more memory. See http://dcx.sybase.com/index.html#1201/en/dbadmin/cw-database-dbserver.html*d5e12045
AWE is not available on Linux.

The obvious question is why are you running a 32-bit Sybase on a 64-bit server.
I have installed 64-bit ASA on half a dozen different servers, and it works very well.
Finally, as a software engineer, even on a 32-bit platform, if the application is built "right", you shouldn't be needing such a big cache ...
Last but not least, check out the 'in memory' option ...
