The "make" steps have changed with the advent of the Linux
2.2 kernel however seection 11.8 has not been updated to
reflect the changes.  It appears that the text for section
11.8 is the same as the RH 5.2 Installation Guide.  In my
case, "make boot" eventually fails with a "too big" type
error in the kernel compression and packaging utilities in
spite of the fact that I set up for and use modularization
when building a new kernel.

I believe that the correct step should now be "make bzImage"
as outlined in:

Yes, this step should be "make bzImage"
Comment 2 Red Hat Documentation 1999-10-08 16:04:59 EDT
Fixed in 6.1 Reference Guide.  Thanks for letting us know!
