kernel recompile

i downloaded the complete version of the 2.6.5 kernel and everythign went relatively smooth as far as making the bzimage and modules and then installing the modules. i made the initrd with no problem, updated grub's menu.lst file with (without the numbers in front)

0 title = New Kernel (2.6.5)
1 root (hd0, 1)
2 kernel /boot/bzImage-2.6.5 ro root=LABEL=/
3 initrd /boot/initrd-2.6.5.img

and when i go to load the kernel from grub, it tells gives me error 15 file not found and then displays whatever i have on line 2.

i've checked to make sure that the files are in the right place i.e. both of the 2.6.5 files are where i specified them in the menu.lst file.

I'm just not exactly sure where to go from here.

any input would be appreciated.

Do you have /boot as a seperate partition?
