I usually wait a few days to make sure there are no funny problems with
the CURRENT kernel I'm using, and then run:
# cd /boot
# rm -fr kernel.safe
# cp -Rp kernel kernel.safe
This way, I have /boot/kernel, /boot/kernel.old and /boot/kernel.safe.
By keeping kernel.safe out of the (kernel, kernel.old) way, I'm sure
that I won't accidentally lose my 'safe' kernels because I run "make
installkernel" at the wrong time.
