Thanks for this but there are some things i don't quite understand.

1. Does this mean that i can add the natty kernel to my GRUB screen
and run Maverick off it?

If so:

2. (Because i don't understand the nomenclature) is the last Natty
kernel on that list (v2.6.39-rc4-natty/), the closest to the one that
will be released today?

If so:

3. What do i do with the file. Do i need to download the headers or
the image (or both) and what do i do to them to get them into the GRUB

Sorry if the answers to these questions seem obvious, but i don't know
anything about kernels.
