It's whi I have intalles 2.6.12, 2.6.15. but *not* linux-image-2.6.
I get no automatic upgrades, can install a new kernel when I choose,
and I still have the old kernels around until I decide to uninstall them.
Grub (or lilo, if I fell like reconfiguring it) will let me boot with
any installed kernel I choose,  in case things go wrong.

Now if only I could install multiple udevs to go with multiple kernels...
