I'm trying to upgrade to a 2.6 kernel. I forgot to set ReiserFS to be compiled into the kernel; it was set as a module. As my root filesystem is ReiserFS I could not boot this kernel. Now, I've recompiled and as I want to keep my system clean, do I un-install the first kernel I created, or can I just install the new one over the old one (dpkg -i kernel-image-2.6.8_1.0_i386.deb do)?
