    This is a question regarding this HowTo:

    How To Set Up Software RAID1 On A Running System (Incl. GRUB Configuration) (Debian Etch)

    I've set up my system using this HowTo, and it's running great. At boot up, I get a choice to boot from either hd0 or hd1:


    Today, I got this Debian security update:

    So I do a "apt-get update" and "apt-get upgrade". After it has installed the new kernel image, it tells me to reboot which I do.

    At reboot, I immediately noticed it has changed grub's menu.lst without creating a backup of my old menu.lst. So I change the menu.lst back to what it is supposed to be.

    But is that the only I need to change/do after a new kernel image has been installed? Or do I need to do some other stuff too, perhaps a "update-initramfs -u"?

    That should be all you need to do. IT should then boot your old kernel again using the old ramdisk.

    Well, I don't want to boot the old kernel, but the new.

    What's in your menu.lst, and what's the output of
    ls -la /boot
