I'm using minimal install CD image for amd64 - everything works well after kernel compile but when I go to copy the image to /boot

I'm stuck after code listing 13:

cp arch/x86_64/boot/bzImage /boot/kernel-2.6.17-gentoo-r5

I get the error message "cannot create regular file - read only file system"
and in chroot the message is "cannot stat no such file or directory"
yet the bzImage file is there under /mnt/gentoo/usr/src/linux-2.6.17-r8/arch/x86_64/boot

I've searched and gone over the steps again to see if I've missed something. Can anyone point me in the right direction.

Is your /boot directory writable?

Is it mounted read only?

post the output of "mount" without arguments, inside and outside of the chroot, then we can figure out what's mounted where and maybe help you.

Code:
/dev/ROOT on / type ext3 (rw,noatime)
/dev/BOOT on /boot ext2  (ro,noatime)
/dev/hda3 on /mnt/gentoo type reiserfs (rw)


The "mount" ouput as root is:

Code:

tmpfs on / type tmpfs (rw)
/dev/hdc on /mnt/cdrom type ISO9660 (ro)
/dev/loop0 on /mnt/livecd type squashfs (ro)
proc on / proc type proc (rw)
sysfs on / sys type sysfs (rw)
udev on / dev type tmpfs (rw,nosuid)

tmpfs on /mnt/livecd/lib64 type tmpfs (rw)
tmpfs on /mnt/livecd/usr/portage type tmpfs (rw)
usbfs on /proc/bus/usb type usbfs (rw,devmode=0664,devgid=85)
