1. LILO booting error(L 02 02 02 02 02 - - - - )

I have a problem.
I want to set LILO correctly and multi booting.
1st hard disk - 5G linux.
2nd hard disk - 40G win2000

When settng linux, I made a floppy booting diskette.
Floppy booting is OK.

hda1 = /boot
hda2 = /
And set LILO(version 21) at MBR

lilo.conf file
===============================
boot = /dev/hda
map = /boot/map
install=/boot/boot.b
prompt
timeout=50
message=/boot/message
default=linux
lba32

image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.2-3
    label=linux
    read-only
    root=/dev/hda1
    append="hdd=ide-scsi"
===============================

After booting, display message following.
L 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02
02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02
02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02 02

I got message's meaning at this site. but I don't know why.
http://metalab.unc.edu/pub/linux/system/boot/lilo/lilo-u-21.ps.gz

Another trying - after rewriting boot=/dev/fd0 in lilo.conf for floppy disk
booting.
-- then booting using floppy disk. I had a the same message.

Why get this error?
Please ...

2. Monsieur dump dies; any advantage using 'pax -x unix' ?

3. LILO hangs with "02 02 02..." message
