Anacoda needs to be able to put the LBA32 etc options into lilo.conf so
that big drives can be used. If there are possible problems using this then
give the user the option to turn it on.
This is really bad that RH still can't be installed on larger hard drives
without making a small /boot partition. It means that a lot of people who
install Windows then try Linux just give up.
Steps to Reproduce:
With wolverine you can do this - make a partition above the 1024 cylinder limit
with the fdisk program (not disk druid), then assign it to be the '/'. It will
automatically try to use lba32.
We cannot make screen changes at this time. This feature has been suggested
before and will be considered for future releases.
Behaviour is better in roswell.
