I am trying to build RedHat LINUX 4.1. The system is set up to do a module kernel build. The build result is a 400k kernel, but then when I do the build-modules step the kernel  jumps to 800k. LILO then stumbles on the load. How should this kernel be built? zImage? ??? Thanks

If your kernel is to large, you have to do `make bzlilo' (or `make bzImage').
