Be sure that your boot= line in /etc/lilo.conf points to the partition that
is marked bootable in the partition table (in cfdisk under Flags you should
see 'Boot').

Please also post the output of running /sbin/lilo after editing your
/etc/lilo.conf to the way you need (and post your lilo.conf with comments
stripped out).
