- If your kernel is too big (>500 Kb), use 'make bzimage' or something like
that instead of 'make zImage'. That option has been specially made for
kernels with a lot of drivers in it, as they tend to become rather big.
- Linux does not probe for more than 64 Mb. Use the option "mem=256M" with
lilo to tell the kernel to look for all 256 Mb.
