You shouldn't need to "make zImage" before "make zlilo" as the latter
option includes both the kernel compilation and rerunning lilo. The
make sequence I use most often can be entered in one line at the
make dep && make clean && make zlilo && make modules && make modules_install
Try that and reboot, and see what happens. If it still is going to 2.0.30,
then check what image lilo.conf points to, check what the modification time
of that image is to make sure it was changed with the last recompile, and
let us know what happens.
