On my main box I'm using factory bios + grub.
The kernel image is vmlinuz and is in the /boot directory.
Since I don't need to append any parameters, ny menu.lst looks like:

#grub configuration file

#by default, boot first entry
default 0
timeout 6

#first entry:
title slack.12
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/vmlinuz root=/dev/hda1

#second entry:


#fifth entry
title memtest86
kernel (hd0,0)/boot/memtest.bin

Note the full path to the kernel.
Hope this helps,
