From what I understand, Anaconda has to install the kernel version it booted, and that therefore, a PAE kernel is not installed by Anaconda unless you do a custom respin.

Historically that has not been the case. Originally, it ran with a specially-built I386 kernel, but chose a 586 or 686 (or briefly an AMD) kernel, +SMP if appropriate.

The kernels did have to be the same release.

I believe that in RHEL Anaconda installs more than one kernel (I use -clone and that's one area they differ) if one chooses the VT stuff.
