You are missing the quotes around the console= command.

You are missing the quotes around the console= command here also.
Here is the valid command:

lilo -a -i initrd-2.4.0-0.43smp.img vmlinux-2.4.0-0.43smp root=/dev/sda2
console=tty0 console="ttyS0,115200n8"

                                                     ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
You see here that without quotes, the comma is dropped and the kernel simply
ignores the option. That's why you don't see anything.

Because this is a composite message coming from the ACPI code.

Hope this fixes it this time !
