Once you get machines setup using MAAS , you may want to be able to install an alternative kernel when starting a machine. Here's how to do it.
This is assuming we have already commissioned a node, but have not started it.
If we are using the _normal_ installer with MAAS do the following:
Edit /etc/maas/preseeds/preseed_master on your maas-server
Add the second line as shown:
Start the node,
Now when you boot you should be using the 3.11 series kernel.
