[PLUG] Kernel upgrade safety...

On my laptop, I have been having some trouble with the freezing up of
display when I enable DPMS. (Mandriva 2008.1)
So I disabled it.  Still sometimes intermittantly I observe some
problems (which i believe are caused due to cpufreqd), and now I am
seeing kernel upgrade packages.

Again int the description of these packages they have given advisory
(sort of) precautions to take before kernel upgrade.

I also assume that any upgrade packages available from distribution
updates sources should be safe for normal upgrade.

Any opinions or suggestion on this point from anyone?
