Slack 9.1 kernel 2.6.1 make install fails

trying to complie the 2.6.1 kernel and everything went smoothly untill I got to the make install, been messing with it for a bit and cant figure out I am probably missing something stupid and its the lack of sleep the last couple of day, so if any of you can just point me in the right direction I would appreicate it

make install
make[1]: `arch/i386/kernel/asm-offsets.s' is up to date.
CHK include/linux/compile.h
Kernel: arch/i386/boot/bzImage is ready
sh /usr/src/linux-2.6.1/arch/i386/boot/ 2.6.1 arch/i386/boot/bzImage "/boot"
Added Slack.old *
Unrecognized token "2.6.1" at or above line 44 in file '/etc/lilo.conf'
make[1]: *** [install] Error 1
make: *** [install] Error 2


# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /boot/vmlinuz.old
root = /dev/hda3
label = Slack.old

image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/hda3
label = Slack 2.6.1
# Linux bootable partition config ends
