SubjectKernel to big for lilo?

I am having a similar problem to the followin e-mail :

This question is basic but it is kernel-related. I am trying to upgrade
from 1.2.13 to 2.0.27 and everything works well except the kernel
generated is not compressed. It is over 1 M and lilo says this is too
big. I am using make dep ; make clean ; make zImage as in the README.
The only thing that I can think of that might be getting me is the fact
that I am not compiling in the standard directory since I'm not ready to
replace everything yet. The compilation mechanism seems well aware of
this fact, however, and it seems unlikely it would get confused on the
last stage. Any suggestions greatly appreciated. Thanks to the
person/people who wrote menuconfig, it helps lots.


I also have rebuilt the kernel to enable networking using TCP/IP but lilo
complains about the size of the new kernel (anybody know why?). I am
presently running Linux 2.0.0 (Slackware 3.0) on P6 200MHz with 99MB RAM.
When I originally configured lilo I answered yes to putting it on the
Master Boot Record (are there any other options? and what does this mean?).

Thanks in advance
