Ooof. This is really my fault. That symlink is supposed to be in /vmlinuz,
since I'm pretty sure your /etc/silo.conf points there instead of
/boot/vmlinuz. Check to make sure. You can either make a new link in /, or
edit silo.conf to look at the right /boot/vmlinuz.

Next set of kernel-images will have the correct symlink.
