(Fwd) What is System.map for ?


as a newbie to linux, I have a question about the System.map file.

I have build a custom kernel.deb package and successfully installed 
it. The package also installed a System.map file. Obviously this file 
has some symbol to memaddress infos and is different in a kernel with 
different .config file.

I just wonder why the map option is a systemwide option in lilo. So 
if I boot the previous kernel, the wrong map gets loaded.

Is this correct ?
