The regular kernel-libre-headers should be acceptable. As I believe that 
if your laptop had more than 4GB of RAM and you were running a 32-bit 
system that did not recognize it, then an libre PAE kernel would be 
necessary. What are you thoughts on F13? I tried the pre-upgrade and had 
some issues with the recognizing the kickstart and install.img being 
found under /var/cache/yum/* which led me to run the install manually 
via URL. It worked fine, but I prefer the BLAG-Alpha.
