Look under the i386 architecture on the Fedora download sites

In Fedora Core 5, the i686 kernels (kernel-xen0 kernel-xenU) were non-PAE.
We later pushed an errata (kernel-xen) which *is* PAE.

In Fedora Core 6, all kernels are PAE - we no longer support non-PAE

The FC6 kernel is in the 'kernel-xen' RPM here:


The FC5 errata kernel is 'kernel-xen' RPM here:
