[Discuss] I, uh, deleted the wrong kernel....

No, I'm not building my own kernels.  I have the 34 and 36 kernels, so
one path (and it would be a great one) would be to somehow get grub to
look for those instead of 28.  How to do that after booting off USB
though.....  That would be my favored option, and I'll have to google in
that direction some more.
