updates and roll back

I would like to know how you can, if you can roll back installed updates.

The prob is i installed Kubuntu and the wireless and was working fine until i updated the system. I have now updated everything except the pcmcia-cs (as i have a pcmcia wireless card) and a kernel upgrade. I'm not sure which one of these will cause the problem and want to know if i install either and it breaks can i undo it?

In Adept, locate the packages to update. Click "Details" and next, "Installed files". These are to be updated.
You might want to include the packages's dependencies, too, in your backups.

As a general rule, updates from Debian-based repositories normally don't break things. In opposite, it's more risky to keep the system in an unconsistent state.
