When the LiveMedium boots up, you will be presented with a screen similar to the Figure above; the installed screen looks quite different. (The 386 ISO offers both the pae and non-pae versions.) Custom entries may also appear in the main menu. Detailed Help on this screen can be found in this document.

This entry is selected by default, and is the standard way that most users will boot the Live system. Simply press Return to boot the system. On the 386 ISO two entries will appear, one for PAE (default) and the other for non-PAE.
Boot from Hard Disk
Allows for user to select a stored ISO to boot.
Memory Test
Runs a test to check RAM. If this test passes then there may still be a hardware problem or even a problem with RAM but if the test fails then you know something is wrong.
Just created & booted a 32bit MX-18 usb drive to check. There is only one entry to boot into MX on the grub screen, and examining the flash drive, only one vmlinuz file. It appears that a non-pae kernel is not provided on the 32 bit iso.
