Looks like you are building a kernel with initrd option. Then from
NOTE about using initial ram disk images (initrd). Recent official
kitchen sink kernel image packages tend to use this, in order to
accomodate as wide a vareity of root file system types as humanly
possible without building them all into the kernel. In order to use
these images, you need to instruct you boot loader that this is a
kernel image using intrd, and tell the boot loader where to find the
initrd image. Unfortunately, you can't just substitute a non initrd
image afterwards without changing the boot loader instructions. So,
if your boot loader configuration expects to see an initrd image, add
--initrd to the above invocation, like so:
$Get_Root make-kpkg --initrd --revision=3:custom.2.0 kernel_image
Do not forget to add a initrd-entry to your lilo.conf
