It is a LILO error: it means it performs stage 1 of the boot sequence, then load stage 2 but don't execute it, maybe due to a wrong disk geometry or to the fact it cannot find the boot.b file. Anyway, is there any specific reason to choose LILO as boot loader. Why not GRUB? You can give it a try and see if it solves the problem.

Try booting from a live disk (your install disk by the sound of it), and issuing the command grub-install /dev/hda in a terminal as root user. This should then install GRUB on your primary master hard drive. Try rebooting then and see how you go...
