Yeah, that would be my fault. :)

I wrote that in before I had access to an x86 linux machine, so I was not
aware that "bzImage" meant "work around stupid bios/realmode limitations"
and not "use bz2 compression".

Speaking of which, is it even possible these days to build a kernel small
enough for (non-b) zImage on x86? I think it's been a while since I've even
made one that can fit on a floppy.
