see pages 112-113 section 4.8.1 Diagnosis of errors: LILO start messages
For those of you without 6.2 books, here it is :)
none: No part of LILO has been loaded. Either LILO is not installed at all
or the partition with LILO's boot sector has not been started.
`L' error ...: The first step has been loaded and started but the second
step (/boot/boot.b) could not be laoded. This normally points to a
physical error on the boot device or a faulty disk geometry.
`LI': The second step of LILO has been invoked but could not be started.
This can be due to a faulty disk geometry or to moving /boot/boot.b
without reinstalling LILO.
`LIL': The second step of LILO has been started but could not allocate
needed data from its map file. This typically is due to a physical error
of the boot device or a faulty disk geometry.
`LIL?': The second step has been loaded at a wrong memory address. This
can be due to a faulty disk geometry or to moving /boot/boot.b without
`LIL-': Data in the map file is invalid. This can be due to a faulty disk
geometry or to moving /boot/boot.b without reinstalling LILO.
`LILO': Every part of LILO has been loaded successfully.
