Very nice... and frustring of course.

Well try to reinstall but make a lilo floppy disk instead... In your msg we dont know if you install lilo (or grub) on your hard drive but if you haven't try to boot from floppy try it. I suppose Mandrake is on your little HD so hum it can cause prob for lilo maybe? Dunno really.
Try to give more detail,like what you see exactly on boot (do you see any others command before the fatal ones? how do you boot it? what's your hardware and do you install it custom.. dunno.. all you can say).

Sory if I cant help you more.
