sorry but I don't agree. They are 2 very knowledgeable Linux users that
never resort to personal attacks and clearly there is something to be
learned by reading. Of course the option is there to just delete them if
you are uninterested.

I gather you have gone into full speculation mode since the only way you
could install it on a computer that doesn't support PAE is to create a
new installer disc (ie anaconda) uses this kernel throughout. Then
there's the issue of installing an OS that depends upon a specific
resource who remains engaged in the process to update. Sounds like a
formula for a lot of frustration whose success will reward a relatively
limited life.
