After editing lilo.conf, you have to run lilo for it to take effect.
If you made a boot floppy, you can boot off that, run lilo, then boot
from the hard drive.

If it boots up from lilo, you can press the <SHIFT> key when you see
the lilo prompt.  That will list your possible boot options.

Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
