Kernel-package (and the default lilo install) uses /vmlinuz and
/vmlinuz.old, which are symlinks to the 'current' (latest-installed) version
and the version before that. After dpkg -i -ing a kernel built by make-kpkg,
these links are updated, and you just have to run lilo (afaik the postinst
does just that).

I don't like this, but it works.
