D'oh! A stupid thing was done then! I changed the boot= to point to
System.map instead of leaving it at /boot/map as it was! Well, at least I
know what to now when I get the system booting again.

It's worth pointing out that the file System.map is
_completely_ different and separate from /boot/map.
System.map is a list of symbols for addresses in the
kernel. /boot/map is a LILO data file that contains
the actual location of the kernel on the disk (in
low-level coordinates, so that LILO can load it withou
any filesystem support at boot time.)
