Lilo stores the physical locations (not the logical locations of the directory entries) of these files, so if these files get physically moved on the disk, you must again run the lilo command.

You can use this same approach to upgrade to a new, stable version of the kernel or to test a potentially unstable kernel before committing to it.

The kernel is updated, as far as I know, like any other software package, and it confuses me slightly that this is at all possible.

Add to this the fact that some even compile custom kernels (which is discouraged on Open BSD), and have a multitude of various kernel versions listed in their boot menus.

The GRUB configuration file is called You now have the full capabilities for both kernels and can choose which one to use when you start your computer.
