That, I cannot assure U, as I have never attempted changing the default
boot entry number.  As such, I cannot be certain how the regenerated
menu.lst would be like after new kernel installations.

Would it be possible to show us your menu.lst file?  Instead of
specifying the default boot entry, we could shift the entries around. 
What I'd suggest is that U shift the generic kernel entry to the 1st
entry.  That way, I'd expect the latest generic kernel to be your
default, even after a kernel upgrade.

This is more dangerous than the 1st method that I'd suggested though, so
U might wanna be extra careful if U decide to shift those entries on
your own.
