[Techtalk] Grub defaults after new kernel image install

I'm updating a few of our RHEL servers at work, which in some case also
means a newer kernel image. Now I seem to recall that if in grub.conf the
"default" line was set to anything other than 0, this would be honored on a
new kernel image install so the server would boot from the "old" already
existing and former default kernel. Is my memory faulty or was this
behavior changed some time ago?

TIA & cheers,
