Linux booting from HD

I have installed Linux-Mandrake 6.0 on disk that shows up in the BIOS as LBA, Mode 4, 1624mb
I partitioned as such
1 16mb /boot
2 128mb swap
3 1004mb /
4 400mb /home
install goes great, I installed LILO in the MBR.
When I boot from the hard drive I get LILO boot:  then
Loading linux...........
And then nothing happens.  I changed the linear setting with no change.  I can boot from a boot diskette and it works great.  any ideas would be appreciated.

I changed the mode from LBA to normal and now it works fine.
Try disabling the LBA mode and configure your bios with the exact settings from your hard disk.  This worked for me and I have more than 1023 cylinders.
