You can omit this, since it is already in the global section. But you
should put vga = 791 in the lfs image section or move vga = 791 to the
global section. In the latter case you can (have to?) delete vga = 791
from the suse image sections.

Now to the question: If you boot your *host distro* and execute /sbin/lilo
from there (*not from chroot*) I can't see why you get that error message.
Of course, the /boot/initrd* files have to exist (non-zero length) and
lfskernel has to be in /boot. And I'm speaking of the *host distro's*
