In what way do you do it?  You don't type them into a command line, you
append them as parameters onto the kernel at boot time.

No need to worry about that, just duplicate an entry in your grub.conf
file.

e.g. If you had an entry *something* like:

title Fedora Core (2.6.16-1.2111_FC4)
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.16-1.2111_FC4 ro root=/dev/hda7 acpi=force
        initrd /initrd-2.6.16-1.2111_FC4.img

Copy and paste it again into the grub.conf file, with the variations on
the copy, so you've got it *both* ways.

title Fedora Core (2.6.16-1.2111_FC4) modifed
        root (hd0,0)
        kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.16-1.2111_FC4 ro root=/dev/hda7 acpi=off
        initrd /initrd-2.6.16-1.2111_FC4.img

Then you can pick either one to boot from when you start the PC.
