depends whether you have lilo or grub for bootloader. Either way, the correct entry is found in there config file, ie. /etc/lilo.conf <or> /etc/grub.conf (?)

remember, if you edit lilo.conf, you must run /sbin/lilo before a (re)boot....otherwise, bad things happen. this does not apply to grub (i believe)
