upgrade a vserver kernel

I have an ubuntu 6.06 LTS server installation with linux-vserver ( linux-image-2.6.15-26-amd64-k8 ) and 3 vservers (Debian) installed. I did not compile the kernel myself, i've used apt-get.

When i want to upgrade i get the following:

The following packages have been kept back:
The following packages will be upgraded:
base-files bind9-host dnsutils gnupg libbind9-0 libdns21 libisc11 libisccc0 libisccfg1 libkrb53 liblwres9 libssl0.9.8 linux-amd64-server linux-image-2.6.15-26-amd64-k8 login openssl passwd ubuntu-minimal ubuntu-standard util-vserver

Is it safe to upgrade? I see there is a kernel file.
I don't want my 3 vservers to have downtime. Or minimal downtime.

Please help, thank you.

If you need more information, please ask.

It's always a trial and error thing... :( If you want to go sure, make an image of your system that you can restore if something goes wrong:

Thank you for your reply.
I've also asked in the ubuntu forum. They say it's safe by the looks of it.
I hope so...
