Will boot from floppy but not from hard disk

I installed bo on my old 486, and the installation was
completely smooth, but I can only boot from the floppy, not
from the hard disk.  This is the second time that I tried to
install it, in my earlier attempt I could not boot from the
hard disk either.  I suspect the problem may be due to the
BIOS settings: a copy is attached here, they are all the
default settings except the setting for the Hard Disk type
47 RAM Area which has to be DOS 1KB according to a remark
buried somewhere in the LILO documentation.  Any suggestions
what I should do?  Your help is appreciated.
