How configuring lilo with raid1 and lvm on mandriva 2007

I've not a long experience on linux and fight sometimes for long my computer! Last weekend I have downloaded mandriva 2007 and installed it. My computer has two sata disk on which are created 3 partitions: sda1 and sdb1 as raid1 group in md0,a swap on each disk, sda6 and sdb6 as raid1 in md1. As I wanted also to be able to extend each volume, md0 has been placed in lvm1 and md1 in lvm2. System installation worked easy and well, and every was ok until I check raid. I tried to shut off the system, disconnect a disk (sdb), and boot again and everything was OK, with only one disk. I shut down again, put back the second disk, boot, synchronize the raid array on both md0 and md1 and try the same while removing the first disk(sda). But then system didn't load. I assume lilo was on mbr of sda, and not on sdb. How shall I configure lilo so that it could boot on both disk when one of them fail?

That is the best guide I can find on how to dual boot. If I'm not mistaken then Section D answers your question.
