Description Elad Lahav 2000-08-20 07:42:31 EDT
Lilo won't install when trying to install the linux root partition beyond 
cylinder 1024. I know that Lilo is capable of handling this situation with 
the -L option, but the installation program does not seem to support it. I 
need to use the installation disk to access linux after the installation, 
and then do "Lilo -L" to be able to use it.

In our testing there are motherboards (which claim via BIOS calls to support >
1024 cyl) which had bad
behaviour anyways.  We're thinking about making this option available in the
future.

I'm marking this a request for feature for now.
