"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Boot your PC with the floppy boot disk. Then, at the boot prompt, type: vmlinuz root=/dev/hda5 or whatever your Linux
root partition is).

This should boot you to the Linux installation. Then check your /etc/lilo.conf file to make sure it's okay. Here's an

 root=/dev/hda5 (or whatever your root directory is)

Then run /sbin/lilo -v at the prompt, and then type
shutdown -r now to reboot your system.
This should install LILO to your MBR properly and allow you to boot without using a floppy boot disk.
