Did you install lilo on linux partition? I cannot try myself, but I
think you need to edit lilo.conf to have
boot=/dev/hda2 #install on 2nd primary partition
and execute lilo.
To boot Operating System for PC, you need to install "bootstrap" at
the beginning of the partition. /usr/sbin/installboot do this for
NetBSD, and /sbin/lilo for Linux.
I think you actually saw 'No IPL Magic'. Those programs write magic
number to Boot sector, and extipl refers to the magic number as 'IPL

I have netbsd running on wd1 and windows 2000 + linux gnu/debian running on wd0. linux is at primary partition 2. Windows boots normally but when I try to boot linux I receive the following message:
