Angry LILO problems: Mandrake XP dual-boot with SCSI/IDE


I have a fairly complicated setup: I dualboot XP and Mandrake. XP is on its own drive, a SCSI drive. Mandrake (/boot, / and swap) is on a partition on an IDE drive. Everything was working fine until I recently clean-installed Mandrake 9.1: Now I cant boot into Mandrake at all.
When I select Mandrake from the Lilo menu, it shows me a screen that says
Uncompressed linux.... booting into kernel..
and then nothing happens.
I can boot from the Mandrake CD and mount my partitions, so I can modify my lilo.conf.
Help!!!!!
Venky.
Here is my lilo.conf:
==============================================
boot=/dev/sda
map=/boot/map
disk=/dev/sda
____bios=0x80
disk=/dev/hda
____bios=0x81
default="XP"
keytable=/boot/us.klt
prompt
nowarn
timeout=600
message=/boot/message
menu-scheme=wb:bw:wb:bw
image=/boot/vmlinuz
____label="Mandrake"
____root=/dev/hda7
____initrd=/boot/initrd.img
____append="quiet devfs=mount hdc=ide-scsi acpi=off mem=1024"
____vga=788
____read-only

Sounds like a 1024 boundary problem...
Anyway..should not be...

Have you ever thought of reinstalling?
