if you are doing a network boot, you want 'lifimage', and you can build
the kernel using 'make palo'

if you are booting locally, then you can just build using 'make vmlinux'
and use the 'vmlinux' file directly.

it's possible to boot almost any kernel at startup time. palo has a
small editor that lets you choose which kernel to boot. 

for more details, you should read the palinux boot faq at
