I believe most modern 32-bit distros use the PAE kernel by default, so you shouldn't need to do anything special. However, in this day and age, it's generally better to just use the 64-bit version of the distro if you need >4GB support. I haven't run into an incompatibility that necessitated a 32-bit distro in over 7 years.

It depends on the distribution you choose -- I think many will install a PAE kernel by default and if not there will usually be an easy way to install one.

Why do you want a PAE kernel?

There are a lot of online pages saying the T42p supports a max of 2GB of ram.

T42 Thinkpad doesn't support pae. If the distribution you are trying to install doesnt ship with a non pae kernel then you better keep looking. Good luck to you
