Use the verbose mode: lilo -v 4     is good, try -v 2 if that's too much.
Also check out: lilo -q -v          is also very handy - it's a query to see 
                                    what you actually have set up.

(LILO actually comprises 3 programs. The program that prints
"LI" at startup is the boot loader. The "LO" is printed by
the '2nd stage' loader, and there's another piece called the
'chain' loader.)
