Never never overwrite ur kernel image but keep a copy of it.

For me, i add a new entry to the boot manager (LILO/GRUB) but not edit existing line. So if anything goes wrong u can still boot using the existing kernel. I even kompile the kernel as a unique name. To avoid this problem.

if you use the command make install after the compilation of the kernel, it itself makes a new entry in lilo or grub.conf. hence you may use that.
