>I installed /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/bzImage into /boot but a file called /usr/src/linux/vmlinux was produced at the same time which appears a bootable kernel also and it shares the same name as the kernel I replaced.
bzImage is the actual bootable image.
vmlinux is used to generate bzImage, and other than that, I guess it's
good for show...
Standard practice is to move the bzImage file to /boot/ and rename it to
vmlinuz. (note the z)
