[ILUG] Debian and new kernel

I cut my teeth on debian (2.2R4) over the weekend on an old HP Netserver (it has an integrated HP Surestore DAT which I was hoping to use for backups). The install was fine but I had to recompile a new kernel (2.4.9) to get support for the DAT drive but I am having trouble installing it. I notice that debian put its default kernel in / rather than in /boot (I have /boot on a separate partition) which confused me a bit as all the other distros I am familiar with put it in /boot - so I put my new kernel in / just to be sure (it's a bzImage if that makes a difference) I added the relevant bits to lilo.conf - ran /sbin/lilo which added the new kernel without complaining. I then rebooted and at the LILO prompt - selected my new kernel but it hung after
The old kernel still boots fine. LILO is on the MBR if that's relevant.
What's the story?
