well just don't use those broken distros :]

If anyone's still shipping kernel that broken out-of-box (debian i486 is ok since there's i686 as pointed out), the distro's just asking for kernel trouble anyways. I'd not use/recommend that, seeing how our kernel maintainers do consider options and make choices.

For the record (since everyone seems to have either missed or not mentioned that) -- PAE isn't working on both Pentium (The First), a bunch of clones, and more notably 400-MHz FSB Centrinos. So it's not really an option of the day to stick PAE in by default -- at least in 2007.
