problem compileing new kernel


hello friends i am trying to compile new kernel
with this procedure sequence(i have downloaded the new kernel source to compile the new
kernel and have patched it properly)
1)make mrproper
2)make xconfig (and i have also tried make menuconfig , make oldconfig by
loading the previous .config file(my old kernel) and then checking the new option which
i want to have)
3)make dep
4)make clean
5)make modules
6)make modules_install

and then making changes to my /etc/grub.conf file

but while reboot my system in the new compiled kernel the eighter of the two error
occurs
a)unable to mount root file system (my root file system is ext3 and the option was selected
during make xconfig(make menuconfig make oldconfig)as i loaded the old .config files.

b) "no signature is found " in tis case the size of the compressed kernel
(the zImage or bzImage ) is 948k but for previous kernel which is working fine is of
1.2m so clearly the new one should be of greater of the previous size(as i have added new option also)

can any body plz help
i will be thankful from the heart

bye

Isn't there supposed to be a cp in there somewhere? Yes, check out http://www.linuxplanet.com/linuxplanet/tutorials/202/1/ - How to on compiling and installing a kernel, that helped me a lot.
