Right. I usually wait a few days to make sure there are no funny problems with the CURRENT kernel I'm using, and then run: # cd /boot # rm -fr kernel.safe # cp -Rp kernel kernel.safe This way, I have /boot/kernel, /boot/kernel.old and /boot/kernel.safe. By keeping kernel.safe out of the (kernel, kernel.old) way, I'm sure that I won't accidentally lose my 'safe' kernels because I run "make installkernel" at the wrong time.
