 SOLVED : LILO gives me L 00 00 00 00 00 00 00

To everyone who mailed me with there suggestions and for my answers here
it is.

I finally did some checking and found that my BIOS was pretty new and
that where
it specifies the hard drives there is a column called Mode. This goes
from 1 to
4 and is as follows.

Mode 1 = Normal - all cylinders, heads and sectors stay the same.
Mode 2 = Large - it doubles your heads and halves your cylinders.
Thereby getting
                 less cylinders. However for my drive it was still over
1024.
Mode 3 = LBA - it quadruples your heads and divides your cylinders by 4.
Thereby
               getting even less cylinders than Large mode. This left me
with
               cylinders =  621, heads = 64, sectors = 63 which use to
be
                         = 2484,       = 16,           63.
Mode 4 = Auto - Don't know what this is for, but it did not work for me.

This approach probably won't work for most people with older BIOS's.
Unfortuanately I could not get to a linux software solution after many
hours
of testing different setups and posts. Hope this helps someone.
