fatal error on RH partition

hey all,

in trying to partition this machine up and install various OSes on it,
i've managed to screw up a lot.  there's a redhat install on a
different partition, and though i can mount it, i can't boot into it.

more specifically, if i add a stanza (really basic, like below) to my
/etc/lilo.conf and run lilo, i get the following error:

Fatal: First sector of /dev/hda5 doesn't have a valid boot signature

the stanza i add to /etc/lilo.conf looks like this:


pretty basic.

should i be asking this to a RH list?  it seems like a pretty standard
question, i just don't know what i did ...
