You're on the right track though!
What you should do is mount it the same way, and then type:
(or whatever directory you want to mount it to, /mnt itself is usually okay
for these kinds of things)
Then you'll find that your / is now /dev/hda's, and you can run lilo
normally and it will work. You can type 'exit' to leave the chroot. A faster
way of doing it is:
lilo -r /dev/hda
This does the same thing as what I described above, only it does the work
for you all in one step [ but it's better that you now know what a chroot
is! :) ].
