If this was a previous kernel installed on this partition, then your 
menu.lst should already have a version-specific entry for it.  Try 
booting that directly without modifying anything.  Also, bug 8614 for 
all this was just fixed.

I used to think that, but was recently corrected by Barry Jackson, and 
found that it wasn't the case, at least for modifying labels and such.  
Maybe there's something special about the kernel/initrd specifications, tho.
