If i understand the boot procedure right it isnt the the mbr but the boot
sector of the partition. For 5.0 the kernel and modules stuff can be found
unter /boot not in the root-tree. So after a buildkernel and installkernel
none of the boot sectors are overwritten and the old kernel will be loaded.

I think this has to be mentioned in the UPDATING text should it?
