Installation of new kernel patch changes lilo/grub?

Hello, I'm trying to upgrade a kernel version using "apt-get install kernel", but it's crucial that the older ones are not removed. With my experience on this, I've had to remove the older kernels for "uname -r" to show the upgrade, but now that's not an option. Is it practical to write a script to install a new patch AND configure LILO/grub to boot from the newer one?

You could probably write a script, but its generally trivial to update it yourself, usually only requiring changing the "Default" line or perhaps adding a generic stanza.
