You probably copied vmlinux across. This is an uncompressed file and not
what you were looking for. Try copying arch/i386/boot/bzImage to
/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.16 or similar. You also need to copy System.map to
make-kpkg (apt-get install kernel-package) is an easier way to get
kernels installed in the Debian way.
