I want be able to boot various versions of Linux on my machine
using different kernel versions.  I had hoped to simply put the
various kernels into a boot partition and let lilo take care of
the rest.  But from what you guys are saying, I should use a 
separate boot partition for kernel version I plan to use, since
there can be only one System.map file in a /boot filesystem?
