I'm thinking that the way forward would be via the GRUB prompt I was able to get off of an old floppy, but to do so would mean being able to by-pass LILO and boot into the first partition on the HD (/), and then go into LILO.conf and change it to accommodate the larger kernel or dispense with LILO in favour of GRUB.
