Having trouble installing a piece of hardware? Want to know if that peripheral is compatible with Linux?

LILO randomly stops working

Hey, for some reason, lilo will work fine and dandy for awhile, then will randomly fail at 'LIL'. I haven't made any hardware changes in awhile, and when I recompile my kernel I reinstall lilo. Any thoughts?

The second stage boot loader has been started, but it can't load the descriptor table from the map file. This is typically caused by a media failure or by a geometry mismatch.
maybe try a configuring lilo again, or reinstalling it.
