lilo problems

When I try to run lilo i get the error

FATAL:  read  /dev/hda  no such file or directory

I get the same message if I try to put lilo on /dev/fd0 or /dev/hda1

any ideas what causes this?

I saw a previous thread on this subject but it seems that the problem there
was that it was a dual boot situation with dos on /dev/hda.  I am not dual
booting and have only one lilo entry.
