During the last part of installation when lilo is set up, and the user is
queried as to what he wants to name the lilo setup, instead of it being the
default word 'linux', they could enter 'linux ric' with a space between the
two words and when booting have lilo barf finding the space. We're seeing
quite a few tickets where the user says it completely installs then refuses
to boot. They'd forget what they named it, while it bombs and we're
supposed to guess what they did because it allowed them to. Ric
During the installation the return code of lilo isn't checked correctly!
If you run lilo with a blank with a configuration like below: i.e.:
default = Red Hat
Lilo returns: Syntax Error near line XXX
During the installation this error is not handled, thus the
routine pretends a successful installtion.
fixed in current releases
