Heres what I would do, get your boot disk and load it. Then (I'm not sure if this will work with debian) choose Upgrade Your Current Installation and just follow through. This may be only Fedora Core 2, but if it works in Debian, then it should preserve your information and reinstall/fix your bootloader at the same time. Good luck!

EDIT: sorry I can't help with lilo. it's just that I haven't used lilo for a long time now, not after I installed grub..

check you hdd that might having problem and might be you din't create lilo properly and always create boot disk tha can sve your data data is important ?
