what i did wrong ?

Hi all,
yesterday i tried to update opera and mozilla browsers. I type slackpkg upgrade-all and it started to update. In the end it showed me a message that it's highly recommended to do smt with LILO , i typed "y"
after than it prompted me some other options and i choosed "o". After i restarted the machine i have this message on the screen " Loading LinuxEBDA is big; kernel setup stack overlaps LILO second stage" . Do i need to reinstall my slack ?

Fixed it. I put install cd and did
mkdir /foo
mount /dev/sda1 /foo
mount --bind /proc /foo/proc
mount --bind /sys /foo/sys
mount --bind /dev /foo/dev
chroot /foo
vi /etc/lilo.conf
changed the vga mode in lilo.conf and all is ok now
