I got the same problem but I thought it was the fact that the boot disk that I used had to be specifically created for the installation.

So I reinstalled the OS and created a boot disk and it worked fine. Though I don't know if that is the reason but everytime I reinstall now I create the boot disk.

This code means that the LILO bootstrap has got to the second stage, but not executed it. This normally means that LILO has not been properly installed.

Boot from the floppy the installation script STRONG suggested you make, and type '/sbin/lilo'.

Check out:
http://nix.tmk.auckland.ac.nz/LDP/HOWTO/Bootdisk-HOWTO

for a description of how the system boots. The LILO error codes are in an appendix. (I would have suggested a search for 'Bootdisk-HOWTO linux' in 'NZ' on the search window at the top of this page, but some people have difficulty with this).
