Gentoo-Manual Kernel Configuration Problem


Hey Everyone,

I've been trying to get a stage 1 gentoo system to work for some time now. Everything goes just fine with gentoo.org's documentation except when I try to compile my kernel by hand. I don't trust genkernel when it comes to it enabling SCSI Emulation etc.. for my CD-RW drive so I manually do it. I am trying to use the gaming-sources kernel.
Code:
# emerge -k gaming-sources
The directions say:
Code:
# cd /usr/src/linux; make menuconfig
I know what options that I need to check off and enable.

Then the directions say:

Code:
#make dep && make clean bzImage modules modules_install
Next I have to make that symbolic link:

Code:
cp /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot
When I try cp'ing the bzImage the CLI tells me that bzImage is not a file or directory. I tried:
Code:
# find bzImage
of the root partition and it finds nothing....where is my bzImage file?

Thanks to anyone who replies.....

That didn't work...I'm sitting there with the "bzImage is not a file" where is my bzImage file?

Yeah, I even checked to see if /usr/src/linux was pointing to my kernel sources.

Code:
# ls -l /usr/src/linux
I get:

#lrwxrwxrwx 1 root 1 root DATE linux -> /usr/src/linux-2.4.20-gaming-r7

the l in the permissions indicates link, right??
