I've been running the PAE version for several days (file slacko-5.4-opera-PAE.iso).
Other than installing firefox, this has been a hassle free change from the non-PAE version of slacko-5.4.
I used to download files to hard drive, but now treat RAM as a RAMDISK.
It's nice to have access to all the RAM in the machine.
Just for fun, I also installed the PAE version to a 1998 Dell Optiplex GX1 with 768MB RAM (no need for PAE). Aside from a hassle to get sound working, it runs fine. The sound issue is also seen in the non-PAE version. Sound works after a little manual intervention.
I like having 2 machines 15 years apart running the same slacko-5.4.
