should I use the "pae" kernel?


running fed 6 on my laptop after doing a yum upgrade I now see a kernel.pae in my grub options...I see this has something to do with using more memory but dont really understand if this is applicable to me (my laptop has 2 gb's of ram.). should I use this kernel or just the regular one of the same version? thanks...

With 2 gigs of ram, you don't need any extended-memory kernel. Just keep what you've got.
