No filesystems are `mounted' yet, so you have to make sure that your
symlink points within the same filesystem as the symlink itself.

If you have separate / and /boot partitions, then there is really no
way to make /vmlinuz point somewhere to /boot.  The best solution is
to put the symlink in the /boot directory itself.

I will be looking at these issues more before the next release, since
they have been mentioned in the past.

Thanks for your report,
