If you are doing this on a Macintosh, you don't need to "make bzImage" -
there is no size restriction on the loadable kernel on macs like there
is for older x86 machines (don't know about newer ones).  Just doing a
"make vmlinux" should be fine (and the "vmlinux" should be from the root
of the linux kernel source code directory).

If you're trying this on a PReP/CHRP/other non-Apple PowerPC machine,
the situation may be different.  Then, this list's archives and Debian
documentation are your best resources :)
