Well, it was still using the old kernel image map, for sure.  You need to
run lilo to update the map, so that the bootloader knows which sectors
contain your new kernel image.

There's nothing special about /boot; you can scatter each file mentioned
in lilo.conf anywhere in your local directory hierarchy, constrained only
by lilo's ability to map their sector addresses.
