Er, that's /dev/hda5. It's not trying to mount the DiskOnChip at all.
Try append="root=/dev/nftla1" instead of just root=/dev/nftla1

LILO sucks like that.

BTW, how many partitions do you have on the DiskOnChip? If only one, why 
are you wasting space on partitions rather than just using a filesystem on 
/dev/nftla ?
