I use lilo, so I don't know the procedure. But all these cp, rm and
ln, do you really need to do them manually? They don't seem to consist
an "orthodox" procedure. For me, after "make clean; make dep" , I just
need to "make zlilo" and everything will be in place: old vmlinuz is
moved to vmlinuz.old, System.map is created, etc.
