    I was wrong. I must have made a mistake when I tried bzImage because now it
    works.

    Up to 2.2.20pre3 zImage works ok. After that it doesn't work any longer, but
    bzImage does.

    For example this is a 2.2.19 zImage

    -rw-r--r-- 1 root root 476269 Aug 11 23:32 vmlinuz-2.2.19

    which reports its size like this

    Memory: 47136k/49152k available (832k kernel code, 412k reserved, 728k data, 44k init)

    A 2.2.20pre9 built from the same .config doesn't boot from a zImage (tells
    Out of memory) but boots up ok from a bzImage. Its size is the same as above:

    Memory: 47136k/49152k available (832k kernel code, 412k reserved, 728k data, 44k init)

    When I leave almost everything out of .config, I get this minimal kernel:

    -rw-r--r-- 1 kaukasoi users 261818 Aug 17 20:01 zImage

    which reports this

    Memory: 47612k/49152k available (428k kernel code, 412k reserved, 668k data, 32k init)

    Even then zImage tells 'Out of memory' but bzImage boots up ok. So it seems
    that zImages don't work any longer.
