Actually lilo hasn't actually caused any problems. The problem is that it cannot find the kernel on the specified hard drive. This can be for a variety of reasons including pointing to the wrong kernel, pointing to the wrong partition or not having the drivers for the file system available in the kernel modules.
If you have lilo installed you will have a lilo.conf file in /etc in order to fix the problem we need to be able to see that file.
OK ls -al /mnt/boot. It looks like you have somehow moved your /boot directory onto /mnt/boot and I don't think lilo will follow a symbolic link. We need to re-populate your /boot directory. It should be fairly easy but we need to find out if the files are in /mnt/boot first.
Okay I just reinstalled the A packages off my cd. It boots up fine. Now I just need to remember what my login and password was but that's a personal thing I could figured out. Problem solved for now... Thanks samac for helping me along this whole way. I actually learned a lot from this experience.
