I don't think the vga=normal setting caused the problem
Maybe try to run lilo again ? as lilo -v -M

try: /sbin/lilo -v -M /dev/hda

If it fails, maybe try /sbin/lilo -u then /sbin/lilo -v -M /dev/hda

can you take a look at the end of /var/log/Xorg.0.log.old ?
might be messages of xorg not shutting down properly
