PSP 7.91 SuSE Enterprise Server 10 has added a boot menu

I am still trying to get up to speed on SuSE and came across the following. On a DL380G5 when I updated the SIM agents from 7.80 to 7.91 the boot menu was modified to include the following:

SUSE LES 10 SP1
SUSE LES 10 SP1 (Failsafe)
HP-2.6.16.46-0.12-smp

Any ideas why the modification took place? Any documentation that explains this? I searched HP, Yahoo, Google but cannot find any info.

Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.

The PSP will add a new entry if it replaces the cciss driver for the Smart Array controller. With the new cciss driver you need a new initrd image and that is what gets added.

Thank you Jimmy for responding.
I am hoping I can ask you a couple more questions?

1) What is the benefit of thew CCISS driver that is changes the boot option menu? Recovery, protection in case it does not load properly?

2) Is it best practice to choose this new menu option?

3) If you choose a different menu option will that affect the system when you return to the new menu option at a later time?

4) I did find a document which I think is referencing what you mention - Page 78 of the following - http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c00472061/c00472061.pdf

Thanks Jimmy.
