What is the right place for lilo? so should I choose ATA krenel? what about SCSI?

I always have installed lilo to the mbr. seems to me the only way to get that to work.
dont choose the scsi kernel. let me run down on the different hard disk types
1. scsi old standard mostly used on servers but not always.
2. IDE sometimes is called ATA(most common drive)
3. SATA Serial ATA
you only have a IDE-ATA drive so you can just install the standard 2.4 kernel that is the default choice.

The Sata kernell supports both sata and pata drives and should work on your pc so I don't think that's your problem.
It's not clear to me what your problem is and it would help if you gave more info and specific details.

make sure when you partitioned your drive you flagged one of the partitions with bootable flag it is easy to do with cfdisk
