You should be able to fix that with pkgtool

select the option to run installation script, then select "liloconfig"

I've never had to do this, but it appear's this would fix your problem.

...or you can just run ( as root ) " #liloconfig ".
-choose "expert " mode
-add linux ( evt win )
-install in the mbr

and you're done.
