fedora 3 and pclinux lilo


ok the problem is thus ... installed fedora core 3 .... all is well (till u see later but i'll be brief). anyway i installed pclinux on another partition and asked lilo to go to the / partition of pclinux (/dev/hda3 fedora on hda1) anyway after the reboot grub only saw fedora (i knew this would happen for obvious reasons) and being as i know lilo a little better i decided to blow away grub and install lilo, i got my self a win 98 floppy and booted it... thus fdisk /mbr whooped the mbr ... then inserted the pclinux cd (live cd) and after i installed lilo ... ok now i got pclinux to boot but i can't get fedora to boot and I need some ideas
here is my lilo.conf:

# File generated by DrakX/drakboot
# WARNING: do not forget to run lilo after modifying this file

boot=/dev/hda
map=/boot/map
default="pclinuxos"
keytable=/boot/livecd.klt
prompt
nowarn
timeout=100
message=/boot/message
menu-scheme=wb:bw:wb:bw
image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.4.22-32tex
label="pclinuxos"
root=/dev/hda3
initrd=/boot/initrd-2.4.22-32tex.img
append="devfs=mount splash=silent acpi=ht"
vga=788
read-only
image=/boot/vmlinuz
label="linuxfedora"
root=/dev/hda1
initrd=/mnt/hda1/boot/initrd-2.6.9-1.681_FC3.img
read-only

Did you copy the settings from your grub.conf? It differs from lilo.conf only by the formatting - should be obvious.

HTH,
