Oh, yah, sorry, I forgot about that senseless limitation of AVLinux.
That's why I don't use it. None of my 32-bit hardware supports
PAE, and the 64-bit hardware doesn't need PAE.

My 64-bit system has 12GB RAM, but it needs it for working with big 
panoramas. Probably the audio uses don't need that much for my simple uses.
