      0x306 would be /dev/hda6, if I'm not mistaken. Does that partition
      actually exist on your computer?

        table:
        hda1: fat32 7.5 GB WinME (/mnt/win_c)
        hda2: - hda5 swap 502 MB
        - hda6 ext2 4.6 GB /
        - hda7 fat32 5.8 GB Data (/mnt/win_d)

        lilo should write to /dev/hda6 (as mentioned in lilo.conf) and before
        the upgrade to biosA18 it does (I believe).
