Was it saying there was no initrd on the disk, or that you didn't
have one in lilo.conf. When I have upgraded in the past using the
dselect,  if I am running lilo, I have to manually insert
"initrd=/initrd.img" or something in /etc/lilo.conf. If you need,
I'll be happy to send you a copy of it.

Of course, if you are running grub, ignore the entire above paragraph.
