Here's a "work-around" method posted at Scientific Linux to install
version 6 on a non-PAE computer. I'm pretty sure it could be applied
to CentOS as well. I don't know how practical it is in the long run
but, at the very least, I think it would give you a bootable CentOS
(or SL) 6 install on a non-PAE system. From there you could probably
compile your own kernel.

It all starts by booting from a netinst iso for Fedora 13.
