I think NT is installed on /dev/sda1, never heard that NT can be
installed on a raw disk without any partition table. The
other=... line looks okay for me, the table=... line should be
"table=/dev/sda" without the quotes. If you have problems booting
lilo try removing the compact option.
I haven't lost my mind -- it's backed up on tape somewhere.
