What version are you using?
What platform are you on?
How old is your hardware?

The 2Gb limit has long been addressed.

RH9, Fedora, RHES all support more than 2Gb Ram (assuming Ram) out of the
box... but its dependent on the kernel.

Newer 2.4 uses a 3G/1G split to address the 4Gb it could handle. (3Gb user,
1Gb kernel).
2.6 uses 4G/4G split allowing a lot more to be used (64Gb with the hugemem
kernels).  This has been backported to the RHES 2.4.21 kernels.

If you are running some stuff on larger amounts of memory in a production
environment I'd start to look at the "Enterprise" distributions such as RHEL
(or their F/OSS rebuild equivalents like TAO Linux and White box Linux).

Is there any work around for this yet where a process can not allocate more
than 2GB.
Can I upgrade my Redhat OS to any particular version ?

Many Thanks.
