    It means that your kernel is too big to fit in DOS 640Ko memory
    during loading, so you can't use loading method intalled when doing
    make zImage. make bzImage uses a new method that uses upper
    memory to load Linux kernel.
    The result is the same. You just need to have a not too old version
    of Lilo or Loadlin to boot Linux.
