oh, and make sure you don't overwrite the old (default) kernel;
in case the new kernel does not want to boot, it might be 
quite useful to have the old one lying around :)

(in simplespeak: you can name the kernels in the "Linux Kernels" folder
whatever you want, ie. "newkernel" or something. BootX will find it and
be happy).
