Re: kernel update, initrd image help

one quick question:

apt-get install kernel-image-xxxxx

Thats going to install that specific kernel image alongside the existing kernel image, correct? i.e. its not going to replace it.

if so, how do i get lilo to offer me the choice to boot into both? I thought the linuxOLD section of my lilo.conf woudl be for the older kernel image. So i wasnt too concerned about the new kernel loading since i thought i could just boot back into the old one. Right now i'm going to have to reinstall the whole thing again since i dont have a choice as to which kernel loads. (not that big a deal since its a new system, just getting tired of all the re-installs)

thanks for the help,

See down at the bottom.

Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
