volid read error @ kernel compiling
 
I configured and compiled a new 2.6.x kernel by following the instructions in the newbie guide sticky.

All went well untill I did the make install instruction. Then the installation procedure complained by printing the following:

Fatal: volid read error

What is this error, and how can I fix it???

Do the make install by hand :
cd /usr/src/linux-2.6.x
mv /boot/vmlinuz /boot/vmlinuz.oldy
mv /boot/System.map /boot/System.map.oldy
cp System.map /boot/
cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/vmlinuz

Verify that lilo points to vmlinuz and reboot
