So you obviously installed LILO :-)

I guess most of the "Help LILO: I only get LI" type of messages

I would guess you somehow didn't install it correctly, so your best
bet might be to boot using a floppy and edit lilo.conf. In

a) the correct drive (partition)
b) the correct location of the kernel
then run lilo (/sbin/lilo ?).
Hope this helps
