umm odd lilo/boot problems

I use lilo to select my OS's on bootup..

it goes somthing like this:


when i select Windows_XP it boots XP straight away (the way it should)

but when I select Linux.. the progress bar at the bottom.. moves a little.. then it stops - i can actually highlight over options.. I hit on Linux again.. progress bar moves a little more.. I have to do this 5-6times before it even starts to load..

how come? surely I should just have to select it once..

and is it normal for linux to take much longer than XP to bootup?

but i suppose I have a AMD-K6 2 550mhz!

Post your lilo.conf and ls -al from /boot.
