Yes, the .deb created by kernel-package will not write to your
/etc/silo.conf

Here is what my silo.conf looks like:


partition=1
root=/dev/hda1
timeout=100
image=1/vmlinuz.old
label=linux
read-only
image=1/vmlinuz
label=linux19
read-only

Here is what my `/` looks like:

(root@sixtyfour)/$ ls -alth vmlinuz*
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root   20 Aug 23 00:30 vmlinuz -> /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.19
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root root   20 Aug 22 23:55 vmlinuz.old -> /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.18

Debian uses a standard practice on not editing your lilo/silo
stanza'a within your configuration and simply adding symbolic links
from  `/` (root) to `/boot` which they call a boot block.

The steps are the old kernel's symlink is `ln -sf` 'd to to vmlinuz.old
and the new kernel is `ln -sf` 'd to vmlinuz. It works out nicely.
