[vox-tech] LILO Segmentation Fault

Hello all,
Can't boot to my hard drive. Brand new install of
Slackware 7.1 on a 486DX2-66 ISA bus 16M of
RAM, 850Mb hard drive (1654/16/63), 1992 BIOS
with a 528Mb hard drive limit. To get around the
limit I setup the hard drive as follows:

/dev/hda1 = 16 megs mounted on /boot
/dev/hda2 = 32 megs <linux swap>
/dev/hda3 = balance of the drive mounted on /

When I try to boot to the hard drive I get
LIL- and the system hangs. I can boot
with an installation floppy by entering
mount boot=/dev/hda3 ro
at the prompt.

The system map and a bunch of stuff
is in /boot.

vmlinuz is in /

When I type 'lilo -v'
I get "Segmentation Fault".

Would it help if I move vmlinuz to
/boot and rewrite lilo.conf to
point to /dev/hda1?

Any help appreciated.
