Compiling kernel for first time, unsure about 1 thing

After doing the make bzImage it goes through a bunch of stuff and when it's done it give me this:
Root device is (3, 65)
Boot sector 512 bytes.
Setup is 4869 bytes.
System is 1252 kB
warning: kernel is too big for standalone boot from floppy
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-2.4.26/arch/i386/boot'
Should I be concerned about this?

There's no reason to be concerned about this, unless, of course, you plan to use the kernel on a bootdisk.
