Kernel too big.

I checked the archives, but didn't find much on this.

I've recompiled my kernel (using bzImage) to provide sound support, and
now I'm getting a "vmlinuz is too big" message when I try to run lilo.
My old kernel was 715260, and my new one is 749612. I've gone through
"make config" and recompiled at least four times tonight, removing
everything I thought I could live without, and I've changed everything
to modules that could be changed to modules. Am I doing something wrong?
Or have I really run into a size limitation? If the latter, does this
not spell trouble for Linux, in that an average person with an average
machine on an average LAN doing average things can't get all his average
stuff into a kernel?

Any suggestions would be welcome.
