Problem installing lilo on floppy

Hello everybody,

I would like to install LILO on a floppy.
I skipped the LILO section during the RH5 installation, because I
couldn't choose to install it to a floppy.
I only want to boot linux from the floppy.
I use the boot and supplement disks to boot linux. Then I can mount fd0 and hda4(the linux section).
I made the following lilo.conf

boot = /dev/fd0

image = /boot/vmlinuz
    root = /dev/hda4
    label = linux
    read-only

But when I run lilo it says:

    Sorry, don't know how to handle device 0x0100

What is the problem?

Merry Christmas!!!!

When You have mounted /dev/hda4 try to put empty disk in youre floppy and do a dd if=/boot/vmlinuz of=/dev/fd0 and boot on this floppy. Then try to login and run lilo.
