Back from Christmas celebration, I have run Joern's non-pae build of
Lubuntu 13.10 live in an IBM Thinkpad T42 without a pae flag. The CPU is
a Pentium M, so it is relevant for that catergory of CPUs (without a pae
flag, but with pae capability).

1. It runs as it should (with zram etc, except that there is only the
guest user, so I cannot run sudo). Anyway it is good as a test, that the
kernel works without a pae flag :-)

(I checked with md5sum that both of you Joern and Phill have uploaded
the same version, the one I tested.)

2. Can *you* try to run it in a computer with a pre Pentium II CPU?
(without PAE capability, so that fake-PAE won't help)

3. Is there some particular feature or program or task, that should be

Best regards
