after debootstrap... how to get vmlinuz and initramfs?


I just did a simple

debootstrap lenny /opt/lenny-chroot

There is no vmlinuz or initramfs under /opt/lenny-chroot/boot.
What would be the next minimalistic necessary step to get it there?

Thanks and cheerios ; )

you don't get kernel and initrd disk until you install the kernel package with apt-get/aptitude

This could make it clearer.
