The option for setting up LILO in the MBR is done during the installation in the LILO configuration section. If you are doing a dual-boot with another OS, this might be a good option.

As far as the error message you are getting, that is the most unusual option I have ever seen. You will probably want to try to reinstall and see what happens.

You will need to boot into the OS somehow in order to recreate another boot floppy. You can do this by booting into rescue mode (type rescue at the boot: prompt at the beginning of CDROM installation.) If you can boot into the OS, simply get to a command prompt and type:

mkbootdisk

This will recreate a bootdisk for you. If you cannot find a way to get to the current installation, Reinstall.
