Kernel Installation Issues

1)Boot Message - I get the following message when booting:

Oct  8 17:10:10 hercules syslogd 1.3-0#6: restart.
Oct  8 17:10:11 hercules kernel: Cannot find map file.

What is a map file?  
Where is it supposed to be?
How do I get rid of the message?

2) Where is the /boot/psdatabase file used?

I manually installed a new kernel (no debian package) and need to know
if it was done correctly.  After compiling the 2.0.13 pnp patched
kernel, I did the following:

a) cp /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/zimage /boot/vmlinuz-2.0.13-pnp

b) cp /usr/src/linux/System.map /boot/System.map-2.0.13-pnp

c) I then re-linked /vmlinuz and /System.map to point to the newly added
files in /boot.  I then ran lilo and rebooted.  

It's working, but there are some loose ends that I am concerned about.  
I've had the "cannot find map file" message since day 1, so it's not
related to installing the new kernel.

The /boot/psdatabase file is linked to /boot/psdatabase-2.0.0.  I
couldn't find any corresponding files in the newly compiled kernel
directory structure.  It would seem that I should have a
psdatabase-2.0.13-pnp as well.
