With this line highlighted in blue you clicked the edit button underneath.Once the next menu popped up labeled "Current Option" you selected the second option --> Boot Sector of Boot Partition.You then clicked ok on this menu and finish on the Boot Loader Set up menu. Did you do this?

Look over the menu options on installation settings. Do you see anything else you think you need to change?Even if it does not look right don't change the mouse if it works. I use a touch pad but ir reads intellimouse explorer (ps2) and somehow that works. ;)

Then click next on "Confirm Installation". This is the step that will reformat your partition so you will have a clean install. Let me know how it is going. ;)

That's absolutely correct. It is suppose to be that way. Next step will be to go into PCLos and edit your lilo.
