Compiling and Installing section Code Listing 3.9: Installing the kernel # cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/kernel-2.6.24-gentoo-r5 The guide is about x86 not i386 (or is it just me ?) Shouldn't it say "# cp arch/x86/boot/bzImage" instead ? I distinctively remember the arch/i386/boot folder being empty after I compiled the kernel. Please get back to me if I'm wrong at email@example.com so I can rectify this... Even tho I managed to get to X and emerged fluxbox and everything, I'm pretty much new to Linux. So please get back to me if I was wrong. Thank you. Reproducible: Always AMD Athlon XP 2200+ falls into the i686 category. Right ? Should I have typed: # cp arch/i686/boot/bzImage /boot/kernel-2.6.26-gentoo-r4 instead of x86 ? I thought x86 was more generic... Please get back to me if you have the time. Thanks again.

It is just you. The x86 image is available at the specified location (even though it's just a symlink on recent kernels).

Just do what the Handbook tells you. All these files are actually the same (some of them are symlinks pointing to others).

If all of them are the same I'll leave it as # cp arch/x86/boot/bzImage /boot/kernel-2.6.26-gentoo-r4 In my opinion, It think the handbook should've specified this. Thank you for your patience.
