Maybe you have one of the woody intaller CD's, boot off the first one, and
when prompted type rescue root=/dev/hdxX <------ replace with your root
partition, probably hda1.
After it boots, take a look at the /etc/lilo.conf file to make sure its OK.
If you are not very familiar with it-> man lilo.conf. Anyway probably your
problem will be solved just by runing lilo, try the following way
#lilo -v -t
Check the output for errors, if everythig looks fine do
then pop the CD out and reboot.
if that doesnt work tell'us and we'll dig a little deeper. :)
