Description of problem:
Hi ??

I just downloaded and installed the Fedora4 Test3 image onto a brand new system. During the install process it only gave the option to use GRUB as the boot manager.  Based on my past experience I do not like; and do not use GRUB, as a boot manager.  I had to spend a few hours getting and installing LILO.  I would like LILO offered as an option during the install process.  I would have been acceptable, but not desirable, even if LILO had only been installed.   As it was I needed to download a LILO rpm, and do an install before I could use it.

I understand that some people GRUB, I can even understand that the developers, because they prefer GRUB, make it the default boot loader; BUT they should maintain the option of LILO for people who do not like GRUB.

Thanks Zach

lilo has been deprecated for years and is gone for good.

Hi ..,

Sigh; going to add a few hours to my installs & make them more difficult.

After every install I will need to boot in recovery mode since I don't ever
install grub.  Then I will have to install LILO manually.

You can always use kickstart to automate that.
