If no lilo was install, then how do you expect it to boot up.

Did you create a floppy boot disk.. ? If not, you can boot using the install cd by doing something like this after booting to the cd:

boot: linux root=/dev/hdX

Where X is the actual drive and partition you have your root partition located at.
