Only the first time it is set up.  Never on updates.
All that you have to modify menu.lst.
The way I have it you have all the boot stuff in one place.
I also don't mount the boot partition from the fstab $( it is not 
necessary ).
That way if you do an update the update can not clobber the others.
You do have to then move the updated files to the boot partition though.
