what exactly are you booting using AA patch? it seems to me that using his
patch you simply by pass either lilo or grub.

as for lilo, it seems to me that your problem is that you install lilo
using different system than you boot from so disk geometry changes and
thus the "LI" error.

as for grub. well it is weird. are you getting any errors? it seems to me
like bochs bios would need fixing.

btw: I assume you are using 16 bit PC BIOS modules from etherboot rather
than 32 bit EBI modules from said package, right? Interesting. Opens lots
of new possibilities.
