    This is exactly your problem.  After editing the lilo.conf, you
have to run /sbin/lilo to copy your changes into the master boot
record.  (The MBR itself is what gets read at boot.  So if you don't do
this, your changes don't take effect.)  It's kinda like kill -HUPing a
daemon after you change the configs.
