Personally I just copy /usr/src/linux/vmlinux to /boot.
Pegasos is a little different

replace 2.6.12 with your kernel-version

Code:
installkernel <version> vmlinux System.map

this is what i prefer, just wondering, why there is no make install with ppc.

I use vmlinux too. But this image is uncompressed.
When I use make to compile the kernel for my mac-mini I also get a zImage.chrp.
So since it is created maybe there is meaning for it though that i haven't tried to boot from it yet.

The zImage.chrp is for booting CHRP machines like some IBM RS/6k. Perhaps with grub2, we'll have better support for gzipped kernels, but for now, just use the uncompressed one.
