You will keep the old kernel during the upgrade. But the new kernel will 
be installed as well and used as default. You can select the old kernel 
from the grub menu and you can modify your /boot/grub/menu.lst to point 
to the old kernel by default.

Anyway, if you know your system doesn't work with the new kernel, you 
should probably file a bug at <>. Maybe the 
problem can be fixed then before the final release of 8.04.
