The same thing happened to me.
When I installed Mandrake recently, I had the same error. I went searching through Google and eventually realized that the 99 99 99 error means something is corrupted. What I did was reinstall Mandrake with LILO and all and it started working again. I don't know why this happens, but reinstalling worked for me.

If you really really want to know what there says...
I will have to _write it down by hand.
I checked fdisk and so ong, I'm not first timer with linux.
I just run out of ideas.
Besides, I gave you information what should be enough to solve the problem.
There is another HD on my computer but it's irrelevant, lilo.conf is really really simple.
That's why I wroted those lines what really matters.
(Everything yelse is commented [ # ] )
Though, my other hd is hda, and lilo is littlebit cranky about it..
AND I noticed that my Slackware cd2 is broken / something.
It's the slackware rescuedisk, when I try to boot from it cames the same error.
Maybe I should try Grub?
