[linux-lvm] HELP!

Set up lvm, a breeze. NO lv root so should boot with a normal lilo.
I was able to boot mounting the lvm volumes to the old failing disk.
I cannot boot the new disk.

1 boot-ext3
2 root-ext3
3 swap
5 vfat
6 lvm volumes

What type of lilo do I need for this. I ran it with
boot /dev/hdc1
root  /dev/hdc2

All I get is the bootmagic text "preparing machine to start linux", then

I am typing this in (gulp) window 98 (at least that still works--somewhat).

The boot record of the old failing disk is messed so I canot use that
knoppix 3.* will not allow me to chroot (its kernel too old)
knoppix 5.01 will, but will not let me run lilo. The device mapper is too
old for the (Sid) system.

Please reply to my email as well as the list.
Thank for any help
