I haven't actually seen the answer to your question and am not real sure
what it is.  I looked at the lilo manual and L 01 means that the first stage
boot loader is loaded and there is a Disk error - the drive is not
accessible.  I think that may have to do with a module that is needed to run
the SCSI drive and that module doesn't get loaded in time for LILO.  I don't
know what module that would be, but perhaps you can find out what is needed.
I glanced at the SCSI-2.4 HowTo and Section 4 covers what is needed in the
kernel for SCSI.  I think your answer will be there.  If you don't have this
on your machine, you can get it in the HowTo section at www.tldp.org. 
Basically, I think you just need to recompile your kernel to include
something scsi which is currently compiled as a module. 

I think you can also do this with an initrd image, but I know even less
about that.
