Was your system in use by Suse or another grub based distro? It sounds like you installed lilo to the partition table but the MBR is grub. I would think reinstall lilo but change it to the MBR and that should remove grub and allow lilo to boot the install. Booting Win95 or Win98 and running "fdisk /mbr" should also take care of it. Or you could look at smart boot manager program and install that. ( http://btmgr.sourceforge.net )
