 Is Protected-Mode required ?

Hello everybody !

I need to use a large buffer in ram  (30 Mbytes).
The questions are:
Is it absolutely necessary to  switch to Protected-Mode to allocate,
read and write to this buffer?

If Protected-Mode is not reqd, how can I point to an effective address
location using 32 bit registers?

Thank you for your help.
