HARD DRIVE WD CAVIAR AC2700 (LILO)

Hello, I need help to install LILO and to
have the same physical/logical address for
my partitions.

Message from fdisk :
====================
Disk /dev/hda1 : 16 heads, 63 sectors, 1416 cylinders
Units = cylinders of 1008*512 bytes.

..

/dev/hda1   *    1     1     508    256000+   6   Dos 16-bits >32M
/dev/hda2      509   509     813    153720   83   Linux Native
/dev/hda3      814   814    1321    256032   83   Linux Native
Partition 3 has different physical/logical endings :
    phys=(1023,15,63) logical=(1320,15,63)
/dev/hda4     1024  1322    1415     47376   82   Linux Swap
Partition 4 has different physical/logical beginnings :
    phys=(1023,15,63) logical=(1321,0,1)
Partition 4 has different physical/logical endings :
    phys=(1023,15,63) logical=(1414,15,63)
Partition 4 does not start on cylinder boundary :
    phys=(1023,15,63) should be (1023,0,1)

Some information more :
=======================
I have installed the Linux system on the /dev/hda3
I have a unique harddisk Western Digital Caviar AC2700 (CMOS 696.9M)
and the Goldstar VL-Bus IDE & Super I/O..

Problems and questions :
========================
I have tried to install manually LILO wihtout success. The system is
always starting from DOS.
Can I do some think to change the physical address of one partition ?

Where is the mistake in general ?????

Thanks a lot for your attention.

Best regards,

Benoit Beck.
