Really dumb boot disk question


I have a slackware server running 2.4.26 kernel in a RAID5 array. For some reason the bootmgr would not install to the raid array. Fine...I made a boot disk and it boots off that. My question is...I have downloaded and compiled a new kernel. How in the world do I create a bootdisk to boot the new kernel?

I've not used it, but I know there is a mkbootdisk command.
