well yes, lilo is LInux LOader, you need a bootloader to boot
GNU/Linux.  however you don't necessarily need lilo, you could also
use grub which is really quite a bit nicer (but not as easy to setup

if your already using lilo just delete any `other=' entries from
/etc/lilo.conf and rerun lilo.  make sure that boot=/dev/hda and not
boot=/dev/hda1 or whatever.  (replace hda with whatever device is
appropriate, sda for first scsi disk for example)
