It sounds like lilo is not even attempting to load. At least you are not getting the old grub loader from Redhat. It might however be attempting to load grub if you installed lilo to the partition, like /dev/hda1. Perhaps installing lilo to the MBR would work better, /dev/hda. (without a partition number)
