You ran make install on what -- the kernel source (after compiling the
kernel)? You probably still forgot to update /etc/lilo.conf.

Since you appear to be using debian, I suggest learning how to use
make-kpkg to compile kernels. The kernel .debs generated by make-kpkg
take care of all of the bootloader stuff for you.

I usually have a GPG digital signature included as an attachment.
See http://www.gnupg.org/ for info about these digital signatures.
My key was last signed 10/14/2003. If you use GPG *please* see me about 
signing the key. ***** My computer can't give you viruses by email. ***
