You need to hit one of the shift keys as soon as you see the "LILO:"

 : Anyone told me, I must edit /etc/lilo.conf, insert 'prompt' and 
 : then run LILO.

This parameter controls how long LILO waits for a keystroke in tenths of
a second (e.g. "prompt=20" waits two seconds).

I think you really want an "appends" line instead.  Try this line in
your /etc/lilo.conf:


Run lilo as root, and reboot.
