    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
