lilo - kernel is too big


i'm trying to compile a kernel, pretty much using the old config file, except im adding scsi and aic7xxxx support, i think all through modules. after im done compiling with bzImage it says this.

Root device is (22, 3)
Boot sector 512 bytes.
Setup is 4653 bytes.
System is 832 kB

ok. so then i try using lilo so that when i reboot it uses the new kernel. however whenever i run lilo it says that the kernel is too big. ive tried using two different ones
vmlinux which is about 1.7M and bvmlinux which is about 8500K. the old one was about 6600k. so what am i doing wrong. i need some sort of scsi support (i think i am doing it all with modules too).

well after compiling your kernel you grab the bzImage file located at
/usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/
