Strange; I would have expected there to be an option to install grub on

It should be OK. I haven't used LILO for a long time myself so this may
be wrong but I think what you need is a lilo.conf entry like this:
You will of course need to make a new entry after you have upgraded your
kernel. It would be a good idea to install grub on /dev/hdb1 and add a
LILO entry to chain-load grub; I *think* the following lilo.conf entry
may be what you need to do this, once you've installed grub.
