I religiously keep at least two or three bootable kernels installed
on my systems.  This way, when installing a new kernel I just don't
have to care.  If the new kernel crashes I can reboot and select a
new (working) boot target next time.

My current config (/vm* are sylminks into /boot/vm*):

--<cut>--
boot=/dev/sda1
root=/dev/sda1
install=/boot/boot.b
map=/boot/map
delay=30
vga=ask
prompt
timeout=100
compact
