IDE/SCSI mixture is your problem. You should already know it if you use
a such combination, if you don't - RTFM. The installer suggests to
create a boot floppy - did you?

Run setup again. Do the same things. After you installed LILO the first
time, go to the second console. Run "chroot /target". Run "editor
/etc/lilo.conf". READ THE COMMENTS. There is an example for you. Modify
as needed. Then exit nano and run lilo. Hm, I think you will also need
to "mount /proc" before and "umount /proc" afterwards.
