    I think you used genkernel....

    Your kernel can be named whatever you want... I prefer installing the kernel with "make install" instead of manually copying over bzImage, .config and System.map. With "make install", the kernel automaticly gets called "/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.11-blah", with a symlink to "/boot/vmlinuz" (note: Z, not X). As genesus said, make a "ls /boot" from the chroot enviroment (with /boot mounted offcourse) and tell us what you get.
