Hi,
I've solved th esimilar situation..
I have one lilo installed in MBR and there is :
...
image=/boot/kernel-2.2.19-2
   label- Debian(Potato)
   root=/dev/hda2
...

other=/dev/hda1
  label=Debian(Woody) 

and second lilo is in bootsector of partition hda1:

image=/boot/kernel-2.4.x (i don't remember ;-))
  root=/dev/hda1
  label=Woody
,,,

and some details:
in teh second lilo i haven't promt and delay, so it immediately
bots the default kernel and mounts default root

maybe it helps you...
