RE: Installing 2nd bootable debian
I think you'd be able to do this by installing the new
distribution on a separate partition (hd?) and during
the install, don't write the boot record to mbr (there
are other options of where to write it, including floppy
(which is probably a good idea) maybe /boot(?))
Then, once installed, add in the new partition to your
existing lilo.conf with a different label pointing to wherever
you put the new install's boot record.
Haven't done this myself, these are very general and
untested instructions, use at your own risk.
Good luck, George
