OMFG!

How can you *not* point to the /boot/vmlinuz symlink?!!! It points directly
to the latest kernel. And, /boot/vmlinuz.old points to the previous kernel.

Here are some examples: This is *just too simple*!!!

Lilo:
image=/boot/vmlinuz
label=vmlinuz
read-only
# restricted
alias=1

image=/boot/vmlinuz.old
label=vmlinuz-old
read-only
optional
append="single"
# restricted
alias=3

Grub:
title Debian GNU/Linux, Latest Kernel
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda1 ro vga=extended

title Debian GNU/Linux, Latest Kernel (recovery mode)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda1 ro single vga=extended

title Debian GNU/Linux, Previous Kernel
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz.old root=/dev/hda1 ro vga=extended

title Debian GNU/Linux, Previous Kernel (recovery mode)
root (hd0,0)
kernel /boot/vmlinuz.old root=/dev/hda1 ro single vga=extended
