cant found bzImage


ATT:
after my lilo question I need to have ntfs support. After reading some howto`s and some other text, I know that I have to build my own kernel. ok so far. I downloaded the latest stable source, and done it as described:
tar -xzvf ...
make xconfig
make dep
make clean
make bzImage
but after that I should find a file named bzImage in the /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot but it is NOT there
Am I blind or what or have I to wait (make bzImage is over) or make something more
Thanks in advance!!!

The one thing they typically don't mention, and the most common 1st kernel compile issue is: Did you remove the symlink "linux" before un'taring the kernel source? If not, all of the kernel source un'tared through the symlink and into the already existing source directory (this will make a mess).

Did the source properly compile from "make bzImage"? Did it end with errors?

Cheers,

Isn't NTFS support part of most standard install kernels?
What happened when you tried mount the filesystem :

mont -t ntfs /dev/ntdrive /mnt

or something to that effect?

Nope, RedHat doesn't compile it in as part of a default install any longer, as of 7.1 or 7.2. I don't know why, maybe to be prats, although I found that Mandrake leaves it in.

tried this already, there is an error msg sounds like "ntfs not supported by this kernel" or so
other thing: I know this must sound for you linux geeks completly like "thumbass, how can you do this", but I just de-installed my smp-kernel !!! Someone should DISABLE this feature
If I try to install the smp kernel, it says, this is a older kernel than the actual is... I KNOW this, cos I updated all my kernels!!!
I should write a web-log or something like this, will be the fourth time in about seven days I reinstalled my linux...
