Description Brent Fox 2000-12-28 20:37:38 UTC
Allow the user to enter lilo parameters like vga=791 or lba32 to the
/etc/lilo.conf file in the installer

Comment 1 Thornton Prime 2000-12-30 23:44:36 UTC
My machine required a lba32 lilo option to boot. I'm not sure why, since it is a
2G drive and the boot partition was the first primary partition.

I wouldn't consider this a RFE but a bug, since without this option I needed to
boot to floppy, and modify lilo.conf.

Comment 2 Michael Fulbright 2001-01-09 23:00:39 UTC
Added to future feature requests.

Comment 3 Brent Fox 2001-04-17 15:58:53 UTC
No longer relavent, since we are not going to use Lilo again.
