LILO and Fedora ..


How can I use Lilo with Fedora with a true way ?

I tried some disros with a Pentium 4 machine and SATA harddrive which not accepted GRUB some times, but lilo is working fine.

I used lilo-22.7-43.i586.rpm
http://rpm.pbone.net/index.php3/stat....i586.rpm.html

Every thing are ok when I install lilo with my lilo.conf
I made ln -s vmlinuz-2.6.25-##.### vmlinuz in boot directory.

Finally I got "Kernel panic" or "Can not find root file system",
I tried three ways in lilo.conf I can not post it here because I don't have access to that machine now, but I think it's like this:
Code:
boot = /dev/sda1
compact
lba32
install = menu
menu-scheme=wm:rw:wm:Wm
menu-title=" Linux Boot "
prompt
timeout=70
delay=10
read-only
disk=/dev/fd0   bios=0x00		# got a 2.88Mb floppy, so specify all
	sectors=36  heads=2  cylinders=80

image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.25-##.###
	label=Linux
	root=/dev/sda1
	initrd=/boot/initrd
	append="reboot=warm"

image=/boot/vmlinuz
	label=Linux1
	root=/dev/sda1
	append="reboot=warm"

other=/dev/sda1
	label=Linux2
	table=/dev/sda

other=/dev/fd0
	master-boot
	unsafe
