I think I know what the problem is. The kernel in /usr/src/linux/vmlinuz
(or wherever) is the base kernel, before it's compressed. The compressed
kernel (at least the one I've used successfully for a year+) is in
/usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/zImage.

But then, you really shouldn't have a kernel over 1MB. Use kerneld and
set up everything as loadable modules (except things like ext2fs...) Much
nicer, and you don't have to deal with things like bzImage.
