 Help LILO gives me L 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

When I boot I get this

L 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00
00 00 00
 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 , etc, etc

It looks like a dump of the boot sector? My LILO is installed in the MBR
on
a Western Digital 1.200Gb. My drive has > 1024 cylinders which I qualify
with
an append statement. My /etc/lilo.conf looks like this.

# Start LILO global section
append="hd=2484,16,63"
boot = /dev/hda

#compact
#delay = 5
vga = normal
ramdisk = 0     # paranoia setting
# End LILO global section

# Linux bootable partition config begins
image = /boot/vmlinuz
  root = /dev/hda1
  label = Linux
  read-only # Non-UMSDOS filesystems should be mounted read-only for
checking
# Linux bootable partition config ends

Also when ever I try to run /usr/sbin/lilo I get

geo_comp_addr : ....(2084 > 1024). Then I ran it with -l and it ran but
then
when I tried to boot I got the above L 00 00 00 stuff.

So what am I doing wrong.
