Can you attach your original /etc/lilo.conf file, /etc/fstab.py file and also
the output of 'fdisk -l /dev/hdc'?

Comment 6 Brent Fox 2001-06-19 14:56:11 UTC
Ok.  I think I see the problem.  I think that the last two lines of the
lilo.conf file don't make any sense.  The "image=" line is where you specify a
kernel to boot, such as /boot/vmlinuz-2.4.2-2...not device names.  I recommend
that you remove the last two lines and rerun the lilo command, and then try the
upgrade again.

Please reopen the bug if you continue to see problems.
