change the lilo entry to reflect whatever you compiled your kernel in.
and i upgraded to 188.8.131.52 on my busted ass gateway laptop and it works fine...and am running the same ver of lilo, so i don't think it's an incompatibility....i think it's a misconfiguration.
and you can still save that install bro...first disk of the install set into the drive, and follow the first screen of instructions you can see on the screen once it boots of CD...
you can plop it into a kernel and log in as root to fix that botched config! it's not all lost yet.
