Outsch! Though these parameters "might" be ok to use in this special
case, it is _never_ a good idea to suggest them. There are too much
cases where these are the best way to blow up the system.

Better very rarely use "-i" but "-U" to prevent parallel installs. Using
the update parameter is best in most every case. Just installing another
kernel the "-i" switch is better.
