Don't know anything about those OS. But, concerning lilo, unlike GRUB,
it cannot install images from unmounted partitions. First you have to
mount those partitions where the boot images are. And then give the full
path of the image, the absolute path, with respect to the '/' of the OS
from which one is installing the lilo. And then the usual 'lilo -v'. You
have to write the lilo.conf with the necessary 'boot' and 'root' things

I used lilo for a long time, and with more than one linux OS, and this
method did work. But, why don't you switch over to GRUB, it is really
better and simpler.
