Description goodby 1999-06-10 06:44:44 UTC
The boot floppy created using 'mkbootdisk' boots
extremely slowly.

Adding the '-c' option to the lilo line in
/sbin/mkbootdisk fixed the problem:

    /sbin/lilo -r $MOUNTDIR -c

This recommendation has been forwarded to a developer for further
consideration.
