Well, I did it. It says something like LILO can't find booter
where it expects it... right? And where does it expect it?
I didn't find answer to this question and finally gave up and have to
use loadlin and therefore to waste some space for DOS 8-(

Can you describe how did you do it? Where exactly LILo installed on
your PC: /dev/hda or /dev/hda1? your lilo.conf??? (onegai shimasu)

... and what you mean by "no change" What's first and what's second etc.

I guess you really mean "flash disk" as swap partition. Yes it's
possible and I used it like that. But later I read somewhere that
flash disks have limited number of writes and it's not recommended to
use them for things which write often (i.e. swap) -- in time you can
just loose your internal disk.
So far I didn't find any better use for internal 4M flash then to have
DOS with games and loadlin on it. Is it possible to fit root partition
