When install/upgrade, lilo fails.
This is because setup has written a lilo.conf that tries
to start up non-bootable partitions.
Lilo fails, leaving lilo.conf to be edited manually,
(the non-bootable parititions to be commented out) and lilo
to be re-run.
A problem for newcomers to Linux.
Need more information about where you installed Lilo and what
partitition Lilo sets to boot.
Also a dump of what the lilo.conf file that is getting written
contains would be helpful.
