LILO 22.5.7-1 on Woody?

I assume you backported this version (22.5.7.2). If you did, please
backport (22.5.8) which have the feature of skip some disks for the
volume ID check, simply by marking them as inaccessible as follows:
       
       disk=/dev/hde inaccessible

This may skip the volume ID check when running LILO. Again, this is
a new feature of LILO which can only be found on 22.5.8.
