    Making 100% sure i can boot into old and new kernel


    Im going to try and compile and run the 2.6.10 kernel some time today. Im a bit puzzled at how i can definitely boot into the old kernel using lilo.

    From what I have read before I rename the old vmlinuz, Systemmap and config to e.g. vmlinuz.old etc and change my lilo.conf. Am i right in saying the old bzimage will be in vmlinuz.old?

    So changing lilo.conf too:

    image = /boot/vmlinuz.old

    Would boot back into the old kernel?

    The thing that puzzles me is how does it know which Systemmap and config to use?


    <edit> Im using slack 10.0

    I think doing:
    make && make install
    make modules && make modules_install
    Should take care of everything.
