make install errors during kernel compile

I have gone through the steps that DaOne listed. I am down to the "Make Install" and this is the output i got.
root@tharris:/usr/src/linux-2.6.2# make install
make[1]: `arch/i386/kernel/asm-offsets.s' is up to date.
  CHK     include/linux/compile.h
Kernel: arch/i386/boot/bzImage is ready
sh /usr/src/linux-2.6.2/arch/i386/boot/ 2.6.2 arch/i386/boot/bzImage ""
Fatal: open /boot/vmlinuz.old: No such file or directory
make[1]: *** [install] Error 1
make: *** [install] Error 2
do i just contiunes to make the modules or do i need to fix something?

Doesn't look like a big problem. I have never used "make install" when building a kernel though, it's easier to do it by hand and you know whats going on.

The steps I would do (after configuring) are:
export VERSION=2.6.2
export DATE=20040216 (there's a command for this but I can't remember it off the top of my head)
make EXTRAVERSION=$DATE modules_install
cp arch/i386/boot/bzImage /boot/linux-${VERSION}-${DATE}
cp /boot/${VERSION}-${DATE}

You can't go wrong with that.
