I'm not 100% positive, but I think your kernel will end up expanding to over
1mb (estimated @ 2->1 ratio) which lilo may normally have difficulty loading.

Try modularizing some of your drivers or read the Documentation/* on
using 'make bzImage'.

My apologies if this is inaccurate info, otherwise, I hope it helps...
