Does anyone on the list know how to make compressed sparc kernels?

Uhm, from the usr/src/linux/README:

 - do a "make zImage" to create a compressed kernel image.  If you want
   to make a bootdisk (without root filesystem or lilo), insert a floppy
   in your A: drive, and do a "make zdisk".  It is also possible to do
   "make zlilo" if you have lilo installed to suit the kernel makefiles,
   but you may want to check your particular lilo setup first.

 - if your kernel is too large for "make zImage", use "make bzImage"

Or am I missing something?
