    Your bootloader was not installed properly. Reboot with the first Mandriva CDROM and go through the install process again. Nothing will install, but it will take you to the point where your bootloader is installed. Reinstall it, and reboot. See if that fixes it.

    Install the bootloader to your Master Boot Record (MBR), not the first sector of the /boot partition. That's used if you have another drive you use from which to boot.

    Apparently the install program wasn't able to install the bootloader onto your MBR. Have you tried installing GRUB instead of LILO? It should be an option during the install.

    You believe that it could try to start for the console

    You could (in theory) boot the system from another bootable CDROM, by passing it a root=/dev/hdc1 command. (Where /dev/hdc1 is your Linux root partition.) This option is only available on some Linux distributions however. I've never tried it in SuSE.
