You should add a "make clean" just before make zImage (you don't
need it if it is the first time you are compiling a kernel).

Proceed like this:

cp /usr/src/kernel-source-2.0.27/arch/i386/boot/zImage /boot/linux-2.0.27
cp /usr/src/kernel-source-2.0.27/System.map /boot/System.map-2.0.27
ln -s /boot/linux-2.0.27 /vmlinuz
ln -s /boot/System.map-2.0.27 /System.map

I suppose you are using a PC. Your lilo.conf file should point to
/vmlinuz. Run lilo and reboot the system. It should work.

I hope it helps.
