Unhappy Damn Small Linux on USB help!

I install damn small linux on to my usb drive yesterday using this website - **Site Cannot been mentioned since i have not posted anything on this server**. I followed all the instructions. When i boot my pc up it comes up with "L 99 99 99 99 ...." I reserched this on the internet and found out that it is a LILO error, i tryed to edit the lilo config file on the usb key but found none as mentioned on a website. Could anyone help me try to get it to boot of the usb. Thnkz in advance.

I have put several versions of linux on usb thumb drives before but i have never been
able to boot directly from the thumb drive. I always used a floppy. this is indeed a boot
issue with the booter so you may want to recopy it over and reinstall it

lilo conf file is located in /etc


then to reinstall do lilo <enter> <key you press in these things>
