kernell compiling.

I have compiled new kernel and i think that something is wrong. I compiled my kernel to support advanced IP routing and as i suppose the IP command is controlling the routing. But this command is not available. So i think that i done something wrong
In order to help you to help me here is what i have done when compiled
cp /usr/src/linux-2.4.20 /usr/src/linux-compiled
cd /linux-compiled
mcedit makefile( changed the version to 1 and line 74(uncommented))
make mrproper
make menuconfig( taked old configuration and added network futures)
make dep
make clean
make bzImage
make install
make modules
make modules_install
Gone to lilo.conf and added
image = /boot/vmlinuz.old
root = /dev/hda1
label = linux

After that gone to /boot and copied to there .config file from /usr/src/linux-compiled and created symlink config to .config.
The new and vmlinuz and map are there, but i compiled the same version of kernel and maybe thats the problem. in boot i have this files

.config( copied from linux-compile new ) new ) ( Mtime is old )
system.old ( old )
boot.0300 (old )
boot.0301 (old )
@config --> .config (new )
map (new )
vmlinuz (new )
vmlinuz.old (old )
when i start lilo -v at the end it tells me
/boot/boot.0300 exists - no backup copy made
writing boot sector
Maybe I need to delete some old files from Boot?
The new version is booting without problem and
uname -r gives
Linux -4.201( the 1 i gived in makefile)
What i need to do? What this boot.0300 file is and where i need to take th new one?
Also in usr/src i have linux-2.4.20 and linux-compile

Thank to all of you!

If you don't want to take the time to help, don't bother answering. If you disagree, then explain to me how your answer helped in any way.

robik ...I believe you have some of the steps out of order. You ran make install before you added the entries to lilo.conf if I am reading you correctly. When you run make install, it renames/copies the correct files to the correct locations and runs lilo for you. Look HERE and follow EXACTLY. You MUST do things in the proper order for a successful compile.
