You have to config your kernel in /usr/src/linux , not in /root ....

After you compile :

make dep clean bzImage modules modules_install

After your make the changes for your Linux Loader (ex: LILO/GRUB)

After you try to boot in..

see ya

First of all, use better and more helpful thread titles in the future. And marking your threads as urgent do not speed up your answers as they also come off as being rude and inconsiderate to the members who come here in their own spare time to answer questions.

Secondly, after you extract your kernel, you need to configure and compile it. Just untarring it doesn't install a new kernel.

Try searching the forums here, its asked all the time and we even have an ongoing sticky thread in Linux - General on steps to install a new kernel.
