you will have your kernel in
copy it to /boot/bzImage-2.6.10
copy /usr/src/linux/System.map to /boot/System.map-2.6.10
copy /usr/src/linux/.config to /boot/.config-2.6.10
put the location of the kernel in menu.lst. The other two
files are for your later convenience.

at least grub found the kernel and started booting. It may
tell you why it panic'ed - like you gave it the incorrect
location for the root file system.
