| csm,
| How would you like to go about this?

I would simply like to have the module add the new stanza to menu.lst or
lilo.conf instead of completely overwrite the existing one. I would also
like to *NOT* delete the pre-existing kernel image and handle modules
properly based upon which kernel is being booted.
