Partitioning Hard Disk

When using Lilo as a loader to load Debian do I require a boot
disk for Hard Disks over 1024 cylinders or does it still work.

ie I have 2 x 670 Mbyte Esdi Drives.
1294 x XX x XX and when I load fdisk in Debian
it says loaders such as LILO will have a problem with
disks over 1024 cylinders.

I ask because I receive a lot of error on the hard disk at certain
times when rebooting it constantly says fsck running checks because
of problems accessing the disk.

Help appreciated.
