The boot loader that is used on your floppy is called Syslinux. I think that's right.
lilo can be installed on a floppy. There are two ways I know of. One is to install lilo into the boot sector of the floppy and nothing else on the floppy. The other is install not only lilo in the boot sector, but also to create a file structure on the floppy. Directories like /etc and /boot and others are created. In the /etc directory, there is even an lilo.conf file. The program that creates this kind of disk is mkbootdisk.
There is also a kernel disk. The compressed kernel is copied onto the floppy using the ' dd ' command. This type of disk is very inflexible because it won't allow you to enter any parameters if something goes wrong.
