You have to also make zImage and run the resulting kernel to get your module working (do also a make dep before :-).

You have to make zImage and put linux/arch/i386/boot/zImage as vmlinuz.
If this is still too big, then use make bzImage and install linux/arch/i386/boot/bzImage as LILO's vmlinuz.
BTW, you could use kernel-package. It will do the right thing.
