Don't know about your system, but /vmlinuz and /vmlinuz.old always point
to the correct images and lilo.conf is set to use those by default. So,
whenever I upgrade the kernel this is all taken care of.
Not necessarily. Ever removed a kernel? Or tried to switch between
kernels with and without initrd.imgs? (Or perhaps you don't use the
stock Debian 2.4 kernels...)
