ramdisks and update-grub

aptitude full-upgrade and good morning Kernel panic: Can't open root device!

Thats how you find out, that update-grub seems to be run after an safe-upgrade and full-upgrade.

Anyways, I created the current initrd manually and named it "initramfs-version-...", thus as after the full-upgrade that I performed, update-grub was run, it only created initrd entries in grub's menu.lst for those ramdisk files that were named "initrd-version-..."

Thus it didn' create such an entry for my current kernel and the system panicked on boot. Gladly, that one was quickly fixed.
