This is the "i686-bigmem" flavour of the kernel, which would normally be installed using "apt-get install linux-image-2.6-686-bigmem". This is on CD 11 of Debian 5.0.3; I don't know about 5.0.1. You can also use a 64-bit "amd64" flavour of the kernel with an i386 user-space. This should perform better than a PAE kernel. This is on CD 4 of Debian 5.0.3 for i386.
