Although the documentation found in Lilo's sources (the one installed
/usr/doc/lilo-version) is very comprehensive, most Linux
users experience some trouble in building their own
/etc/lilo.conf file. This document is meant to support them
by giving the minimal information and by showing five sample
/dev/hdcthat will boot as
/dev/hda. This is usually needed when you install a new Linux drive from your own running system. This also tells how to boot from SCSI disks when your BIOS is modern enough.
The last three examples are by Cameron,
who wrote the original document. Alessandro
doesn't run anything but Linux, so he can't check
nor update them by himself. Needless to say, any feedback is welcome.
