You will probably have to make a symbolic link to the kernel images.
Originally the kernel is installed in /boot and a symlink named vmlinuz
points to that kernel.
In my case I have 2 symlinks in my / partition, @vmlinuz and
@vmlinuz.old, the former pointing to /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.24-sparc32 and
the latter to /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.23.

My silo.conf says

A nice way to edit your symlinks or look at them is with the help of
Midnight Commander, a 2 pane filemanager that works in the console.
Apt-get install mc, and then run it with mc. it has an option to edit
symlinks. The best way to edit your silo.conf is probably to have
image=/vmlinuz pointing to the symlink in /, which points to the
kernelimage you want to use in /boot.
