I get that error once too (i don't know how or why), but after i reinstall it worked fine.

Post here your lilo.conf file, maybe we can help you

One other thing... have you tried grub?

ok, let's start from the begining then.

Give me the configuration of your machine... for ex.:
WindowsXP on the 1st partition of primary master (hda1)
Fedora Core 3 on the 3th partition of primary master (hda3)
Give me also the name of the files there are on the /boot/ dir

We'll try to make you a lilo.conf were.

Actually their is some problem with your lilo.conf file. When you run lilo it look for the files, whose entries are been made in your lilo.conf file and if it can't locate them, it throws an error. There must be some .bmp entries in the lilo.conf file. Try commenting those lines in the lilo.conf file. Start lilo and later reboot.
