Which, may be a problem with my grub config-- but i dont think it is,
I can't seem to get grub 2 to boot the resultant vmlinux/zImage, it
just likes to tell me its missing the magic number-- which I'm
guessing, and my knowledge gets hazy here, is a result of it not being
a multiboot compatible image?
