How?  The script needs to know which kernel image to ln.  Where does it
get that information?

Anyway, I really wish this thread would die.  Evidently I'm alone in my
desire for the split, and that's fine.  I'll do it at our site, if
anyone else subsequently discovers the urge they'll find this thread in
the mail archives and they can mail me to get a copy of my rules file,
and that's that.

If anyone's genuinely interested as to why I want to do things this way
at our site, I'll post a URL describing the configuration system we're
using.  Maybe it'll make more sense in that light.
