That's cheating :) I feel a bit embarrassed for that easy
solution since Debian kernel packages already do this for me
when installing new kernels (it keeps the old ones automatically
in the grub menu).

That is the way to go! I just feel sorry for not thinking of this
before my k7 system crashed and I switched to pentium, and then
now to k8. Rescue CDs are good sometimes...
