Problems with LILO & GRUB

I have XP installed on my primary hard drive (C)
And Mandrake Linux installed on what would be (D)
When I install Mandrake with LILO i cannot boot eithier OS.
The same happends with GRUB, neithier will boot.

This happend before with RedHat 7.3 and RedHat 9.

Currently I'm booting Linux off a floppy disk - the same as I've always had to do.

I've tried installing both bootloaders on MBR and thier own hard drives.

But all I get is the Screen being filled with
"L 07 07 07 07 07 07 07 07 07......"

Would it help if I re-installed Mandrake on my primary hard drive and put XP on my second hard drive??? (Thats all I can think of that I haven't done)

Can anyone help??
