Yes, there is a boot sector at the beginning of a floppy. You should
take a look at /usr/doc/lilo-*/README (or wherever the doc/ directory is
on your system).

Sounds like you can get into one OS. If so, you could run lilo there,
mounting the other partition to point to it's /boot, kernel, etc. But I
wonder whether your problem is lilo.
