Ah, not exactly, I guess. From `man lilo.conf' I find that ...  

              Specifies the number of tenths of a second the boot
              loader  should wait before booting the first image.
              This is useful on  systems  that  immediately  boot
              from  the  hard  disk  after enabling the keyboard.
              The boot loader doesn't wait if `delay' is  omitted
              or is set to zero.

So just a `dd' might do the trick (but it'll show the message 
LILO loading Linux ..... )
