Ehm, no.  Since the device entries would be different.

Now you could setup your fstab and root= to use labels instead or
possibly the uuid of the filesystem.  Then it doesn't matter what the
device is called.

And why would anyone use lilo anymore?  Grub is superior in every way,
and much simpler to work with.
