No, sorry if I wasn't clear. Again, this is just a quick-n-dirty that will
simply permit you to boot the last kernel e.g. in the event that the new
kernel fails to. The last initrd will contain the boot modules
associated with the last kernel, and the system will start up. Modules
which are loaded later in the boot process and are dependent on a matching
kernel version, will fail.

ah, would have been too easy to be true. of course, getting back into a sort-of
working system this way is easier than booting from DVD into rescue mode or
something--specially if one doesn't have a CD/DVD drive, like i at the moment.
good idea, thanks.
