Personally, I install by hand because the script couldn't possibly tell that I 
want this new kernel (which has some test patches in it) to be a particular 
name (even though it is built from a kernel tree which has some other name). 
And modifying grub.conf is second nature after you've done it about fifty 

Not for everyone, of course.
