grub menu.lst kernel option preservation

I have a Dapper server running here that has a motherboard that won't
run stable unless I specify "noapic nolapic" on the kernel line.
The problem I have is whenever there's a security update for the kernel,
the menu.lst gets rewritten, and my modifications vanish. The result is
a server that hangs after it's been up awhile (yes, I know... I should
remember by now, but it's one of about 15 boxes I watch over).
Is there a "proper" way for specifying boot options that will live
through a kernel update?
