This target doesn't exist, at least not in 2.6.3.

I tried "make vmlinux" but this faied to boot with a message about the
kernel not being in an executable file format.  Maybe due to my Grub
being 32 bit?

Try switching to Grub.  Some of the monolithic kernels I've built gave
a warning of being to large (for a floppy) at the end of the build,
but Grub had no trouble booting them.  I don't know what the size
limit for Lilo is but the largest kernel I have is 2.1MB and Grub
boots it.
