I use:

/boot/initrd -> /boot/initrd-current-version
/boot/initrd.old -> /boot/initrd-old-version

In lilo I use the initrd directive in the Linux and LinuxOLD stanzas to
point at the appropriate soft link. I've only gotten two levels on one box,
but it handled it correctly. Single levels on a couple of other boxen were
handled properly.

I'm told kernel-image-2.4.7 now creates the soft links and updates
lilo.conf, but haven't confirmed that.
