Do you mean something other than "/boot/vmlinuz-linux" by "where they
need to be"? Because that location is not really ideal. To avoid
conflicts with other operating systems the kernels should go into an
OS-specific subdirectory on the ESP (i.e. /boot/arch/vmlinuz-linux or
even /boot/EFI/arch/vmlinuz-linux, I never quite understood what the
EFI directory is there for...).
