I use make menuconfig, xconfig just wouldn't run for me.

You can copy the kernel from bootdisk to /vmlinuz, and re-run lilo.

when you made modules - did you run
make modules, make modules install and depmod -a   ?
Try setting up without modules, the modules have some extra steps
that could confuse you.  Experiment with modules when the
other stuff is ok again.
