Description Geoffrey D. Bennett 1999-06-03 15:37:22 UTC
Using the 'lilo --location none' option in ks.cfg appears to
have no effect; the LILO configuration is performed anyway.

I was able to replicate this problem with 6.0 in our test lab. I
created a kickstart file and had the line

lilo --location none

The installer stop at this point to ask me if I wanted to put lilo on
the mbr or root partition instead of choosing skip as it should
properly do. I chose skip and everything continues on.

In the 6.2beta3 installer, passing this to kickstart causes "ValueError:
list.index<x>: x not in list" in installclass.py, line 27

This issue will be fixed in the next cut of RawHide (after 2/14/00)
