Default Kernel configuration file ignored?

Hello all,

I've just tried to compile and install a new kernel in FBSD 7.0.

However, the /boot/kernel.old/kernel and boot/kernel/kernel files are exactly the same size: 9219468 bytes.

This is what I did:

I edited a copy of the GENERIC kernel configuration file and named it P200MMX. It is in /usr/src/sys/i386/conf . (BTW, are numbers allowed in the configuration file name?)

Then I used the following commands:

cd /usr/src

make buildkernel KERNCONF=P200MMX

make installkernel KERNCONF=P200MMX
I rebooted and the GENERIC kernel appeared to be used, not P200MMX.

uname -i
...shows: GENERIC.

I didn't notice any error messages in the whole process. The pc boots normally, but apparently not using P200MMX.

Any help is appreciated.
