So does my ancient Celeron A's clocked at 300 Mhz.  Support of the 3rd
layer of address tables (64GiB address space), isn't really of any use
for deciding which kernel to install.

I have 2 Pentium Pro/200Mhz boards & chips that have PAE. It was the
first chip to get it on the Intel Side. Athlon was the first AMD chip
with it and the C7 was Via's.

PAE is useless unless you want to run more than 4GB RAM on a 32bit
system. Evidently, to enable the NX/XD bit, you have to have it
enabled because it uses bit 63 of the table. However, very few 32bit
chips have PAE as I noted earlier.
