First, does LILO work after you've added the lines? You must remember the append lines too.

Try GRUB. It's better to start linux not from windows 9x.

when it refers to the "/boot Linux partition" on the above page, is that the root or swap?... says 50MB for /boot .... seems too small to be either... i use 2x RAM (+1024M) for swap and ~7gig for root
