So, it looks like you're moving the Alpha kernels to /boot instead of storing them in /. This requires changing the boot parameters and should be clearly documented for the upgrade. It fact it would probably be worth a screen at the end reminding the user to make the change. When I upgraded my system and didn't change the boot parameters my system came up with my old kernel and during the boot it complained a lot about the System.map not matching the kernel version.

I'm changing the component to installer because of the "screen at the end" suggestion. The doco needs to be adjusted too.

This issue is resolved in the 6.1 installer and documentation.
