What is Lubuntu's plan regarding the non-pae kernel?

The one thing I can tell you is that I tried the non-pae mini.iso today and
it did not load a kernel.  Now I am just trying the regular mini.iso to see
if it loads properly.  I will probably try the non-pae again on another day
but it appears the archive does not have the non-pae kernel ready for the
minimal install. Back to testing...out
