You just need to enable initrd support in the kernel config. Im not at a linux computer right now, but I believe its in devices or filesystems. After that recompile, run mkinitrd (just type that on the command line for an exapmle of usage) and try /sbin/lilo again with the correct initrd location and name.
Alternately, if your certain that you dont need to load any modules at boot (is your root filsystem compiled in, or loaded as a module?) you could try booting without an initrd.
By the way, why are you booting a kernel image from the source tree?
