DRBL break after Kernel updates to 2.6.18-6-686?

It seems that when my Debian machine updated to kernel 2.6.18-6-686 DRBL stopped working. Has anybody else experienced this? I have not changed the DRBL config in any way, that I know of... DRBL looks like it works, but when I PXE boot from another machine it fails. PXE booting worked great before I applied this update. Anybody have any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Have you tried running:
/opt/drbl/sbin/drblsrv-offline -s `uname -r`

This will reset the links in the /tftpboot/nbi_img/ directory to reflect the new kernel.

It seems that the clients are booting with the old kernel, but are getting fed all the new modules/configs.

Make sure you backup everything first though. I can't remember if it did more than just create the simlinks.
