Doing 'make zdisk' will copy the kernel to the disk if you have it
in the drive--you don't need to copy it afterwards. If you build the
kernel on the same machine you're running it on (and you have only
one version installed on this machine) you don't need to rdev as the
make will do it for you. As another poster commented, make sure your
kernel you're building has support for your SCSI controller built
in as well as filesystem support for your root partition (which should
be ext2).
