When I boot with PXE Boot into openSuse, error says 'invalid or corrupt kernel image'


When I boot using PXE Boot into openSuse, from the menu, I get an error saying 'invalid or corrupt kernel image'. The initrd.img file, and vmlinuz file were both copied from a openSUSE 11.2 system, which is what I'm trying to setup PXE Boot for. PXE Boot works fine, dhcpd, and tftpd both work fine, the box receives an ip, it is directed to the proper file which I know by viewing the log file /var/log/messages, they are at the bottom so you can see them.


=================================

ll /boot/vmlinuz
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 28 May 12 20:46 /boot/vmlinuz -> vmlinuz-2.6.31.5-0.1-default
ll /boot/initrd
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 27 May 12 21:25 /boot/initrd -> initrd-2.6.31.5-0.1-default

initrd.img and vmlinuz were copied from initrd-2.6.31.5-0.1-default and vmlinuz-2.6.31.5-0.1-default respectively

=================================
