Unhappy Problem in starting Red Hat Linux 7.1 after installation on 40 GB hard disk

I have tried to install Red Hat Linux on 40 GB. hard disk which already had win ME installed on it.

I created the a single primary partition of 1.9 GB with fdisk, installed ME on it.

Then I booted the system with Linux bootable CD, created partitions with LInux fdisk as:

primary, 50 MB. partition as boot partition for Linux

Windows 95 extended partion with remaining space on the disk on which I created

Linux swap partition with 512 MB space as RAM on my system is 256 MB, 2 GB space for LInux native partition.

Selected install LILO on 1st sector of the boot partition and installed Linux.

Then I rebooted my system with WIn ME partition, installed win NT4. Restarted the system with win NT, ran bootpart.exe utility and edited the boot.ini file with Linux entry, so that option to boot with Linux appears in boot menu.

Then I installed win 2000 in a separate partition.

But, when I tried to boot the system with Linux, it asked for Linux system disk, I inserted and tried but it couldn't booted and shown an error.

I follwed the same procedure on my previous 20 GB hard disk successfully with the guidance of a Linux professional.

But, this time it failed though I tried it 2-3 times following the same procedure.

Will somebody please help me out????????????
