Default lilo wants to re-assign volume ID on external USB device

I have an older 1-gig MP3 player with a USB interface that plugs into
a PC and looks like a mass-storage device. It also recharges the
internal battery from the USB port. I had it plugged in when I made a
tweak to my kernel, and ran lilo to update the boot process for the new
kernel. I got the following message...

================================================== =====================
Reference: disk "/dev/sdc" (8,32) 0820

LILO wants to assign a new Volume ID to this disk drive. However, changing
the Volume ID of a Windows NT, 2000, or XP boot disk is a fatal Windows error.
This caution does not apply to Windows 95 or 98, or to NT data disks.

Is the above disk an NT boot disk? [Y/n]^C
================================================== =====================

I hit {CTRL-C} to stop it. Then I unplugged the MP3 player, and ran
lilo without incident. Was lilo actually intending to physically write
to /dev/sdc? BTW, here's the output of "fdisk -l". The MP3 player is
listed at the end.
