You already have a, it is in the root of your linux source
directory. Thus, as you copied vmlinuz over, do the same for

cp /boot/

modules-info is something specific to RedHat which you do not need.
`make modules_install' is all that is required. Now, edit your
bootloader (lilo, grub, etc) and reboot. Enjoy.
