Ok, try make bzlilo

U'll get vmlinux and System.map instaled on '/'

just move /vmlinuz to /boot/vmlinux-2.2.15 and same with System.map
Dont forget remak the symlinks on /boot directory

just remove /boot/vmlinux and add a ln -s /boot/vmlinuz-2.2.15 /voot/vmlinuz
(same with System.map)

relaunch lilo. and reboot.
