Question Grub (SOLVED)

I've just compiled the latest (stable) kernel ( successfully. Then, I added the correct information to grub.conf. However, when I try to boot it, I get the (stage2) error "Error 13: Invalid or unsupported executable format". What's going on with that? (And yes, I did make the bzImage.)

Turns out I grabbed the vmlinux file (which was supposed to be it) instead of the bzImage. Thanks to the Czech site that I couldn't understand a word of but had two lines that allowed my correction of the error.
