Lenny -> Squeeze kernel upgrade

I'm reading the Squeeze Release Notes in preparation for upgrading a few boxes from Lenny to Squeeze.  I have never done an upgrade, and am confused by this line in Section 4.6.1 of the Release Notes:

" For example, if you see '2.6.26-2-686', it is recommended that you install linux-image-2.6-686. You may also use apt-cache to see a long description of each package in order to help choose the best one available. For example:
# apt-cache show linux-image-2.6-686

You should then use apt-get install to install it. Once this new kernel is installed you should reboot at the next available opportunity to get the benefits provided by the new kernel version."

Since I have kernel 2.6.26-2-686 just as the Release Notes say, I thought I would have to install linux-image-2.6.32-x-686 (for example), instead of "linux-image-2.6-686".

Can anyone help clarify please?

Thank you.
