uncompressed image too long?

While trying to boot a custom 2.4.24 image (apt-get kernel-source-2.4.23,
apply patch-2.4.24), I stumbled across the following:

SILO boot: 
Uncompressing image...
Decompression error: uncompressed image too long - wouldn't fit into destination

Error loading /vmlinuz

Image not found.... try again

This one is kicking my ass, especially as I'm primarily using the .config from

If it helps, this *IS* an SMP kernel (it's compiled for a quad cpu E450).
Any ideas on what I can do?
