backup of file


for the lilo package I would like to make a backup link of boot.b on
pre-installation time, since after the new boot.b is insatlled and before
the new lilo is run the system wont boot anymore.

The question is now:

ln /boot/boot.b /boot/boot.b.<suffix>

what should i use for suffix?  is ".dpkg-old" ok? This would be deleted
after the first successfull run of liloconfig.
