System.map isn't used by lilo. It's used by oops debugging tools to decode
addresses -> functions, eg syslogd. Typically you should copy
<linuxsrc>/System.map to /boot/System.map-<version> whenever you've
compiled/installed a new kernel. (syslogd will use System.map-2.2.13 if
kernel is 2.2.13)
boot.map, as someone pointed out already /is/ used by lilo. And afaik
regenerated by lilo whenever you run it. Lilo has to use the bios to access
boot.map, so therefore you should never move it without rerunning lilo.
(trying to clear confusion) :)
