       installkernel - install a new kernel image


       installkernel version zImage [directory]


       installkernel  installs a new kernel image onto the system from the Linux source tree.  It
       is called by the Linux kernel makefiles when make install is invoked there.

       The new kernel is  installed  into  {directory}/vmlinuz-{version}.   If  a  symbolic  link
       {directory}/vmlinuz   already   exists,   it   is   refreshed   by   making  a  link  from
       {directory}/vmlinuz to the new kernel, and the previously installed kernel is available as


       installkernel resides in /sbin only because the Linux kernel makefiles call it from there.
       It should really be in /usr/sbin.  It isn't needed to boot a system.
