You have to run lilo from only one of the distributions and the kernel(s) for
both also have to be on that distribution. Lilo requires access to the kernel's
location on the harddrive in order to setup the boot block. So just copy them
both to the RH partition (since that's the one you can get to) and setup the
lilo.conf that way (keeping the root partitions different for each one).
