Read and heed this: How to get good answers with your questions about Linux

Don't yell, it's not polite Goodness! Find that caps lock key and turn it OFF!, then edit the post and use plain English as it should be typed.

Then I may read it again, I don't know. I just don't take kindly to yelling.

I'd advise using the Red Hat boot floppy - you can use it to go straight into your distribution - from ther you can check your Lilo.conf file for problems.
