If you are asking how to make the next boot bring up a
particular kernel without permanently changing the default,
you need to make sure you don't look at the grub info file,
but instead do a help on "savedefault" in grub itself.

The --once and --default options will let you temporarily
hack the default boot so the next reboot will use a specific
entry, but go back to the original default for the boot
after that.

(I just figured this all out recently for a machine being
used to test tools on a gazillion different linux distros :-).
