Default Question about nandroid backup and kernels

Hey.

One question before I flash a custom kernel on my SGS3. I was planning on making first a nandroid backup with the stock kernel-

If I flash a custom kernel and after a few days I want to revert back to the stock kernel will the nandroid backup do it? Or does it copy everything except the kernel?

Does the nandroid backup backup the kernel also so I can go back to my previous kernel too?

Thanks.

So not the kernel?

Weird. I thought it did an image of everything.

U can always flash kernels individually. Just an extra step.
