Problem in installing new kernel

Recommended Posts

am a new user to Red Hat Linux Enterprise Edition 4.1

I am trying to install a new kernel on my Linux.


I have compiled the kernel and copied bzImage to /boot partition.

Also I have modified the grub.conf file

it is listed as


# grub.conf generated by anaconda


# Note that you do not have to rerun grub after making changes to this file

# NOTICE: You have a /boot partition. This means that

# all kernel and initrd paths are relative to /boot/, eg.

# root (hd0,2)

# kernel /vmlinuz-version ro root=/dev/sda6

# initrd /initrd-version.img
