Your initrd image does not work, it's to big.

Try uncompressing /boot/<your-initrd>.img (best you copy it to
/tmp/initrd.gz, gunzip this) and figure out the size. Round this size to
the next "regular" number and add "ramdisk=8192" or what ever your size
it to the append line in lilo.conf. rerun lilo and try again.

It might be required to boot from some kind of recovery device if you've
realy screwed up. hopefully you have something like this, otherwise
there are some generic solutions available on freshmeat.net
