are you re-writing lilo after the lilo.conf change? ( it's not like grub, where you just change the conf file and everything else is automatic, you have to re-run /sbin/lilo after changing the config file for the changes to take effect).

That means you can have a text message OR a bmp splash.. (comment message= line or bitmap one).

Try running: /sbin/lilo -v -v
to get a detailed log
