The strange thing is that the same kernel version, but for x86_64 
installed without a hitch. It was only the PAE.i686 one that gave me 

I should also add that after the first initial bad install of that 
kernel-PAE, my entire graphical screen froze up and I could not use 
the keyboard to kill X or even to reisub. I was forced to hit the 
power switch, but not before I had waited a long time after the 
install, in case something was still running, but fortunately when the 
freeze occurred, all of the packages had already installed and had 
already cleaned, too, but my command line prompt had not yet returned.

What kind of note should I make?
