Cause you didn't configure your kernel the way the original
one was configured. You never created the proper initrd image
for the kernel you compiled. Instead of copying over the bzImage
and System.map to the /boot directory, why not do a make install
instead? This should set things up nicely for you including the
changes to /boot/grub/grub.conf.

You know you've been spending too much time on the computer when your
friend misdates a check, and you suggest adding a "++" to fix it.
