Ha! I've got a system with more than 4GB of RAM. I always thought PAE
was turned off in the FC1 kernels so that the kernels would perform
better for most users. This was my guess anyway.

To get around the memory limitation (and the old SMP umount hang problem)
I ran the EL linux kernel from whitebox on top of FC1. I'll be keen to
try the new FC1 kernel when I next get the chance for a reboot.

Bugzilla #122960 is not accessible to my bugzilla login. Why is that? I
thought that the private bugzillas were to protect Red Hat customer
details. How can there be a supported customer with a Fedora kernel?

Keep up the good work!
