From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.2.5-15smp i586)
Text mode install, (notebook) there is no option to NOT install lilo.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. text install (a "notebook" configuration.)
2. Manually Partition.
3. format, choose hostname, security, mouse, inst. lang, root pw...
4. Select pkgs...
5. make boot floppy.
6. X config.
Actual Results: System unbootable from HD.
Expected Results: Asked to install LILO, I'd say no, it would leave old
Bug #29498; closed because I didn't realize it was a TEXT mode install
(My notebook has a 20Gb disk, and needs lba32 in lilo.conf.)
This is how this option is designed - if you would like more control over the
system configuration try the custom option.
