Default Can't find initrd... After compiling & using (Yaird)

I am trying to compile a new kernel (2.6.19-2) from (2.6.8-2) as per this how-to:
http://how2forge.org/kernel_compilation_debian_p2

All seems to go well until I try to follow instructions to create ramdisk.

My last successful step was:
cd /tmp
wget http://downloads.howtoforge.com/file...8bpo1_i386.deb
* dpkg -i yaird_0.0.12-8bpo1_i386.deb

After the above command * and according to how-to I should find the new
initrd.img for the new kernel under /boot... created But, I do not see the new initrd.img - which should be: initrd.img-2.6.19-2-386...

I tryed to do a find (find / |grep initrd) to see if this file was placed somewhere else and none to be found...

Some output if it helps:
/boot# ls -la
total 8471
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 1024 2007-02-02 12:33 .
drwxr-xr-x 21 root root 1024 2007-02-02 01:45 ..

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 1097554 2005-08-16 11:14 vmlinuz-2.6.8-2-386

It doesn't say you should find the new initrd in /boot, it says you should find the new kernel configuration file in /boot. The initrd has still to be created.
Please read that section again.
