    Can you explain what you mean by "normal kernel images". As far as I know bzImage are normal kernel images although there are other image formats such as zImage.

    "make bzImage" is used specifically to create the kernel image. "make" can be used as a command that builds the kernel, its modules, creates the image etc without specifying individual commands for each process.
