NAME
       installkernel - install a new kernel image

SYNOPSIS
       installkernel version zImage System.map [directory]

DESCRIPTION
       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 pre‐
       viously installed kernel is available as {directory}/vmlinuz.old.

BUGS
       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.
