Well, actually, i did't either. But now. Even after the make-kpkg - way if
get

Hmm. i did not read all of the manpage, and wanted to add the kernel-release
with some additional parameter.
depmod -a 2.2.13 
should hopefully have been been enough. Now it is too late.


Well, nevertheless. This Problem with the System.map remains. Where should
it be put?
>From earlier times, i uncommented the line INSTALL_PATH=/boot in the main
kernel Makefile, to have everything in my /boot - Partition - We know of
Lilos capabilities to boot a kernel from disks with more than 1024
cylinders.

So, in my .deb, both, kernel and System.map ly under /boot. The installer
puts some link into / to have the kernel again in /boot. Unfortunately, this
link might not exist at boot time. So, what should i put in my lilo.conf and
how does lilo know, which System.map is valid?
