Sorry buddy, it doesn't make sense.
AS for your problem, triplied, before getting hands dirty with lilo.conf try
you need to be root to perform this operation, if no errors returned, you need to know which device is your cd-rw, is it /dev/hdb, /dev/hdc, etc.? Then as root edit /etc/lilo.conf, open it in any text editor as root. You might try to do so from console, if you've installed pine then there's no-brainer command line text editor - pico, so in the console/Xterm/Konsole type
Password: <------- type your root account password
cp /etc/lilo.conf /etc/lilo.conf.orig
The above line will create a backup copy of /etc/lilo.conf if you screw it up
Now bring this file into pico editor with
Navigate with arrow keys, also there is a sort of toolbar on the bottom with available commads to guide you in editing files. So you should navigate to a pattern like
image = /boot/vmlinuz
root = /dev/hda1
label = Linux
right after root entry add the following line
replace hdX for device that corresponds to your CD-R/RW device in /dev/ directory
now Ctrl-O will write changes to this file, and CTRL-X will exit from pico
still in console as root run
to update lilo with changes you've made and reboot.
After the system reboots run as root from console
it should return something like this
