This seems like a no brainier.
Definitely promoting. Grand idea :)
Do it in LMDE too!
Sounds like a good idea
It would be nice if the PAE kernel could be automatically picked if you are running a multi-core processor on the 32 bit OS as well.

When I installed on the Mac Mini, I had to manually install the PAE kernel. The kernel was PAE capable, but I only had 2 gigs of RAM. Using the PAE kernel allows me to run a 64 bit VM as a guest OS on the 32 bit host.
This is implemented in the updated installer in Mint 10. If you have more than 3 GB of ram, the pae module is installed automatically in the 32 bit installer.
On Isadora 32bit the -pae kernel was not chosen if you had 4G of RAM only. You have to manually install it. However, on Julia (the RC was just released) the -pae kernel is chosen on my 4G RAM machine.
Isadora 32 bit installed the pae kernel automagically on my 64 bit system with 6 gigs of RAM.
This feature is already available.
