clarification in building rootfs image with kernel image

Do i have to place cross compiled compressed image of the kernel(zImage) or uncompressed image(vmlinux) in / directory before building a rootfs image for an embedded board?

When i checked in desktop os in /directory while running i saw the name 'vmlinux' like that. Is it due to the decompression of compressed zImage into vmlinux while running or we should actually place uncompressed image in the /directory?

please clarify!
