In an IDE system, the boot loader must be installed in the boot sector of the primary master HD.
This means that the first line of your lilo.conf file should read:
Then in the OS section, you should have:
image = /boot/vmlinuz
label = linux
root = /dev/hdbx
Where x= the number of the partition on hdb you want to use as Linux's root directory.
