I can hardly blame him if he is using vmlinux. The zImage (or bzImage)
is buried way down the tree: /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/zImage

Whatever it is that gets compiled should get an _obvious_ name and
be put in the root of the source tree. I really don't care if it
is moved or just symlinked. (a copy would waste space)

Another suggestion: a plain "make" should run menuconfig.
Actually, the old config should be scriptconfig and menuconfig
should be the normal config.
