    The SuSE Linux 6.0 distribution has lilo set up to load the kernel from
    /boot/vmlinux but the kernel builds to /vmlinux when you do make zlilo
    or similar so it seems you've done everything right, but the old kernel
    still boots. You need to either copy the kernel to /boot or change the lilo
    configuration file in /etc/lilo.conf

    Page 316 15.2.6 of the user manual mentions this.
