There are different ways to do nothing. Does it complain with some noises, or is
the HD active ? Is the screen blinking, or has the resolution changed between
lilo and the boot ? Please describe the symptoms.

If it's a problem of screen, check the "Console drivers" section of the kernel.
You may need framebuffer. In this case did you check for the nodes in /dev ?
They are not created by MAKEDEV. In this case, see documentation in
/usr/src/linux/Documentations/ for framebuffer.

Maybe it's something completly different ;-)

Don't know anything about this. Sorry.

I had a similar problem after a boot. I realised that I had used the files in
bootscripts.tar.bz2 directly to create the init files. And discovered that they
were script files to create them with cat (sorry :-( didn't read the doc). So I
checked my entire /etc directory. Lots of errors. After corecting them,
everything was OK.
