indeed... from how I read it, the Celeron 'M's that can support pae but do
not advertise it will be automatically supported. I understand that there
are two early 'M' chips that cannot support pae at all.

In the meantime, the work on the non-pae community respin of lubuntu 14.04
alternate continues.... Both my self and bodhi are committed to get this
sorted so it is not only released on time, but has documentation to ensure
people can help keep it up dated for the 5 years.... with the passing of
fake-pae I hope you may want to get involved. I've allocated a dedicated
build machine solely for the non-pae 14.04 lts.
