Ah, ok. Fedora itself no longer provides a non-PAE kernel for i686, I'm
merely following their packaging (do you have a non-PAE regular kernel
as part of the stock fc11 install? If so, is it working?). Most probably
the overhead of PAE is small enough to be not worth having both packages

I'll test the i586 install on Monday anyway when I have access to my
test hardware (it should either not install or work IMO). It could very
well be a packaging error on my part.
