# dpkg --purge lilo
# apt-get install grub

Double check /boot/grub/menu.lst *before* you reboot.  Your situation is kind 
of unique:  Most people have a more difficult time with lilo than grub.  
Personally, I would stick with lilo if it works for you until you have the 
experience to deal with an unbootable Linux system without tearing your hair 
out.
