it can be messy, redhat distros screw around making System.map ->
System.map-X.X.XX symlinks which is retarded and wrong.

System.map is looked for like so:

/boot/System.map-`uname -r`

so make sure you have matching System.map files and NO stupid
symlinks.

/lib/modules/`uname -r` needs to the match the kernel in question. 

in short i think sharing /boot across distributions is a bad idea, too
many distributions are too broken in fscking things up in /boot for it
to work very well.
