LILO warning after updating!

After installing a new kernel and updating LILO, it said this....
Warning: The boot sector and map file are on different disks.

Is this anything to be concerned about? It boots just fine, but why the warning?

Windowz is on /dev/hda, and Slack is on /dev/hdb, LILO installed to the mbr.

I don't know. I can't think of any circumstances where this would be a problem.
