You create a lilo boot disk by entering commands at a command prompt.
If your distribution boots into a GUI (gnome or KDE) then find a menu entry or desk icon for "terminal", "xterm", "konsole", "shell" or some such and start a terminal.

Yes, making a lilo boot disk is SOP for linux users.
PLEASE make is simple

Sorry, the answer to your question is fairly lengthy so I am pointing you to a HOWTO to save a lot of typing:
