OK, the naming of various Linux kernels as "vmlinuz" is one of the stupider moves in the Linux world. They should be named "vmlinux.igz", or something similar, and gunzip to "vmlinux.img". The initrd files should be "initrd-[number].cgz" and gunzip to "initrd-[number].cpi" for a cpio image.

You need to use something like "gzcat /boot/initrd- > initrd-".
