Hello,

You could do what I do with my tftp boot directory.

Bootp or whatever points to vmlinux-hostname.

vmlinux-hostname is a symlink to a kernel.

Changing kernels is just a matter of changing the symlink.

Also, because I have multiple arch's, I put the kernels in subdirs too:

[ian@slinky:~]$ ls -l /export/tftpboot/
