I assume that linux is actually booting up, but that you can't see the screen, 
so when the lilo screen opens, hit Esc and you should see a text login 
screen.  Type 'linux 3' and that will give you a text login.  From there you 
should be able to run XFdrake.

One caveat - I may be remembering the capitalisation wrongly - if it doesn't 
work, try variations such as XFDrake.
