do configure the kernel! Do not use defaults!

when you did cp bzImage to /boot
I hope you did cp bzImage /boot/vzlinuz-2.4.17

then try this cp bzImage /dev/fd0
rdev /dev/fd0 /dev/hda5

try to boot from floppy

if that is ok , reconfigure kernel try to boot it.
If it still don't boot perhaps your bios can't reach kernel
for some reason.

if still don't work post description on
what hardware / disk ?
