I take it that you have both a CD-ROM and a CD-RW.  If you use ide-scsi
emulation without CONFIG_IDECD, I suspect that you will be able to
access both of them as (emulated) scsi drives, /dev/scd0 and /dev/scd1.  

Alternately, it is possible to install LILO on a floppy, so the append
option in lilo.conf should be recognized.  See
