Lilo seems to have some problems with the "append" command
The machine has 1GB RAM on board, which causes the kernel
panic. I have to specify "mem=1000m" to the kernel.
When I manually type "linux mem=1000m" at the lilo prompt,
everything works fine. However, if I use the following
/etc/lilo.conf and run lilo to install the loader. The
kernel panic remains as if I've done nothing.
Just let you know, it's working this morning. I am quite confused
at this time. Maybe it's because of my mistake. Sorry.
Unless it happens again, we'll assume that you accidentally
forgot to run lilo after modifying lilo.conf -- something that
has happened to most of us. :-)
