Check your /sbin for lilo and liloconfig. If they're there run liloconfig in a root term and set it up.

Preferably Use FAT32 for both the Partition.

5. create the / partition of 5 GB(~ size required to install Linux, full installtion is 4680 GB). The size of this partition should be preferebly the size of the linux installation size.
6. create a swap partition (~2*RAM Size) preferably more of double time the RAM Size.
