Is there documentation to transfer a custom built kernel

running 'make installkernel' on the compile machine?
Just transferring the intermediate files and then running
the installkernel on the target machine?  Thanks.
I ended up tar'ing and ftp'ing the kernel to the
486 machine. (Sadly, it didn't finish boot.  The
last thing I had running on it was FBSD 4.6.2 but
it could do much; FreeDOS has boot errors too.
Maybe it's time to just chuck it.)
EDIT: Actually, the 486 never booted any DF image;
I had installed/booted/ftp'd/etc on another machine.
