Check your BIOS settings and look for an option about antivirus control.
These options often check for attempts top modify the MBR and sometimes
attempts to modify NVRAM. For installations of OS, you frequently need to
turn off this option. If you plan to run LILO on a steady basis, just turn
it off and leave it off. (Opinion.)

If  you go to and fro with windows/linux it is your call, but you should
probably disable it for the install and then enable it after Linux is ont
he disk.

This makes you happy and excited. :-D

I bet you wonder how I can tell. 
One of the following:
1) Used my excellent powers of ESP
2) Read your body language
3) use of Emoticons and an explicit e-mail message ;-)
4) it came to me in a dream

BTW, congrats!
