It looks fairly simple:

boot    = /dev/hda
vga     = normal
timeout = 30
message = /boot/message

image  = /boot/vmlinuz
  label  = linux
  root   = /dev/mapper/vg-root
  initrd = /boot/initrd

But I think you can also use /dev/vg/root (in my case). I think lilo
only uses this line to look up the device number (major, minor).

What's your problem?
