Description Jeremy Katz 2001-04-08 05:22:03 UTC
up2date isn't preserving permissions on lilo.conf backups and test copies
being moved around.  lilo.conf can contain passwords for either booting
images or for restricting commands passed to the kernel, so it's kind of
important to preserve the permissions :)
