/dev/hda6	/		2500MB

Need more information.  Were there any error messages which might explain why
Lilo failed to load properly?  Where did you choose to install Lilo?
Comment 3 Anonymous 2000-04-13 09:38:59 EDT
Sorry for the duplicates....

The installation process did not ask where to install lilo. I chose to create a
boot floppy. I also skipped the X configuration part.
Comment 4 Jay Turner 2000-04-13 10:07:59 EDT
What type of installation were you performing?
Comment 5 Anonymous 2000-04-13 10:21:59 EDT
It was a text mode custom installation.

I encountered this problem last night (2000/04/14).  I was doing a text mode
expert install.  I chose a custom installation and selected individual packages.

The installer did not ask where to install lilo and I chose not to create a boot

I was using the boot-20000407.img image on a floppy.

What screen do you get after the "Choose Partitions to Format" screen in text
