Sorry, what I meant to ask was whether this should become
/boot/dot-config, or just /boot/config ?

I guess I wasn't being clear.
I installed Grub over my existing, working, LILO configuration.
The menu.lst file referred to the old /vmlinuz file and booted correctly
I then copied that stanza for the new kernel that I had compiled, and
tried to boot that, getting the kernel panic that I described.
The menu.lst stanza that I tried to use is:
kernel (hd0,1)/boot/bzImage-2.6.10 root=/dev/hda2
ramdisk_size=100000 init=/etc/init lang=us atapicd nosound
noapic noacpi acpi=off noapm nousb nopcmcia nofirewire noagp
nomce nodhcp xmodule=vesa hdc=ide-cd
Since I compiled the kernel without either loadable modules or initrd (
as far as I know ), I didn't include those --- hmmmm, I notice a
reference to /etc/init. I will check the machine to see if that is
valid, although I don't know why it wouldn't be, if the other kernel has
the same parameters.
