graphical lilo....doensn't go graphical


Hey, as following shilos faq i tried to make my lilo boot in graphical mode, as a curiosity, and also just as i can

however whenever i boot, Instead of the boot image, i get the lilo version and it tellig me that it;s loading the first entry on my list instead of the choices (i normally want to load that one, but sometimes i need my windows boot)

i'm using the graphic pic here;
http://www.geocities.com/mctarnet/images/
renamed to /boot/logo64a.bmp

using shilos faq mixed with this one:
http://www.princessleia.com/liloSplash.php


my lilo.conf reads (commented entrys removed)
Code:
# LILO configuration file
# generated by 'liloconfig'
#
# Start LILO global section
boot = /dev/hda
vga = 773
bitmap=/boot/logo64a.bmp
bmp-table=485p,210p,1,5
bmp-colors=0,,4,15,,4
bmp-timer=555p,460p,15,6,4
timeout=500
# End LILO global section
# Linux bootable partition config begins
Image = /boot/bzImage-2.6.10
  root= /dev/hda3
  label=SlackCur
  append ="nolapic acpi=on"
Image = /boot/vmlinuz
  root = /dev/hda3
  label = Slack10
  read-only # Non-UMSDOS filesystems should be mounted read-only for checking
# Linux bootable partition config ends
# Windows bootable partition config begins
other = /dev/hda1
  label = WinXP
  table = /dev/hda
# Windows bootable partition config ends

any idea what i'm doing wrong?
i'm on a presario 21111ea, slack current., 2.6.10 kernel (self compiled)


thanks for any help

-------------
# Start LILO global section
boot = /dev/hda
vga = 773
bitmap=/boot/logo64a.bmp
bmp-table=485p,210p,1,5
bmp-colors=0,,4,15,,4
bmp-timer=555p,460p,15,6,4
prompt
timeout=500
-------------

add the line " prompt " as shown ; then run " #lilo " to reinstall it.
i think that will work.
