You've done all correctly so far; I've used v4.0 of Partition
Magic, and it's worked nicely, except for the fact that it
rewrote the type of each of my Linux partition...

Do you have a boot disk? If so, it should be possible to start
from that, then read the LILO docs. I had similar problems
with LILO 20 on an 8GB drive, but that was AFTER I had already
had it working several times with Slackware, RedHat and other
distributions. Then it myesteriously worked after I fiddled
with the lilo.conf.

My HD reports 1027 cylinders, but as long as /boot resides
within the first 1024, it's not going to be a problem.
(You *do* have /boot early on the drive, right?)
