I don't know why I'm still lurking on this list but anyway:
The kernel type (i386 pae, non-pae or amd64) stays the same, however with
the upgrade a newer version of that kernel gets installed.
There are additional notes to this, for instance the new kernel gets
installed but the old one stays lingering about and you can revert to it if
you can't seems to boot the new kernel. I also think that you guys are
confusing generic and pae/non-pae. Generic belongs in the list with other
type of kernels mainly used in recording studios. This would be lowlatency
and realtime. You'll have to google what they exactly mean because I don't
know and I really need to go to bed now.
