I had installed a kernel on Beagle-board to update image of kernel on to it. I have used command

sudo apt-get install linux-image-

It installed the kernel on Beagle-board it also generate initrd image for this version but it didn't generate a uImage and zImage. actually I want to boot this kernel on Beagle-board. Can anybody give me some steps showing how to boot a new kernel which is recently installed on Beagle-board, but doesn't get booted on power on.

Or if it doesn't generate any kind of uImage, how to make it bootable.
