Unhappy Change loader from grub to lilo


I got a default Redhat9 installation on RAID5 disk group attached to RAID controller. So the default loaded would be grub and boot from /dev/sda. Now I'd like to change to boot from LILO. I install the rpm, edit the /etc/lilo.conf and do lilo -v -v -v. But warning message popup while I do lilo -t. "The boot sector and the map file have not been altered." What's left I need to revise? can somebody give me a hint?

Here my etc/lilo.conf is.

boot=/dev/sda
map=/boot/map
install=/boot/boot.b
prompt
timeout=10
image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.20-8
label=Redhat9
root=/dev/sda2
initrd=/boot/initrd-2.4.20-8.img
read-only

Yesterday, i finally got the lilo prompt and stop at LIL-, i really have these files...
Just don't know why......
