We have a eeePC 1000HE. that's a Celeron 1.666ghz, and I'm pretty sure it's non-pae,
as it does not allow to expand beyond 2GB of RAM.
PAE is for a different kind of memory addressing/mapping, allowing to go beyond 2GB,
but we'll never go beyond that in this machine,
I would like to know if I can use the Standard 32bit edition instead of the Legacy non-pae version.
For the first 2GB, will both the for-PAE and the non-PAE address it in the same manner, using the same standard?
Or do they even address the first 2GB differently?
The reason: it is my understanding that the latest Kernel patches a major vulnerability, which, I assume, would still be present in the older 3.2 kernel.
