Probably you forgot to run mk_initrd before calling lilo?

SuSE do use initial ramdisk images (initrd) to load some modules (in case you
need reiser, scsi, pcmcia, whatever to boot). I think it is in /etc/rc.config
where you define what modules you need to load.

If you call lilo without having created your initrd for a kernel you may be
not able to boot this kernel. Check it.
