kernel compile the debian way - Debian

Hello, I'm new to compiling kernels the debian way. This is how I do it: make menuconfig make dep make-kpkg clean fakeroot make-kpkg --append_to_version -468 --revision=rev.01 kernel_image modules_image dpkg -i kernel-image-2.4.21-468_rev.01_i386.deb Now that works fine except it moves the kernel I now use to vmlinuz.old. Every time I install a new kernel it moves the kernel I am using at that time to vmlinuz.old (the symlink). Can I configure that it just adds a new entry in lilo?

    Default kernel compile the debian way

    Hello,

    I'm new to compiling kernels the debian way.

    This is how I do it:
    make menuconfig
    make dep
    make-kpkg clean
    fakeroot make-kpkg --append_to_version -468 --revision=rev.01 kernel_image modules_image
    dpkg -i kernel-image-2.4.21-468_rev.01_i386.deb

    Now that works fine except it moves the kernel I now use to
    vmlinuz.old.

    Every time I install a new kernel it moves the kernel I am using at
    that time to vmlinuz.old (the symlink).

    Can I configure that it just adds a new entry in lilo?

    Thanks in advance,

    man kernel-img.conf, and, as Christophe already mentioned, always keep a
    'good' kernel around, just in case...

    Hi,

    Thanks to everyone that aswered. I didn't know which man page to read
    :). Also I didn't think of inserting a good kernel in lilo.conf.
