Big Broken Kernel

I've been using the noname kernel image on my UDB that comes stock with
RH4.0. How I have attempted to compile my own kernel (I have experience
with Intel RH). I assume that:

make dep clean boot

Will do this for me. I get a LARGE kernel image even after I compress
it manually 6MB -> 2.5MB then I try to boot off of it. This is more
than 4 times larger that the one that comes with RedHat. And then
after loading the image the machine says... "not a kernel image --
system halted" or something to that effect.

I'm just using Kernel 2.0.18. (is there something wrong with this?)

Please help. (We need an Alpha specific howto for some of these problems)
