The short answer is "yes". The long answer is "it depends".
The first consideration is what you have on /dev/hda, and the second is
what you want to ultimately do.
If you want to use LILO as your only boot manager and have it present
you with a screen of available OSes to boot, then you will have to
install it to the MBR of /dev/hda. From there you can configure it to
give you a selection of which OS to boot and you just point it to the
Debian install on /dev/hdb1 to get Debian.
On the other hand, it you are using another boot manager and want to
keep it, then you will have to install LILO on the "superblock" of
/dev/hdb1 and configure the other boot manager to look there for boot info.
There are many other config options available too...it just depends on
exactly what you want to do. What I described above is just what I use
here. Could you flesh out your setup a bit more? I.E. what do you
have on the other HD (/dev/hda) that you want to preserve?
