Description bruggemn 1999-08-18 20:34:54 UTC
On a fresh install, if you create a dos/win partition and
do not format it, lilo will fail to install.

Comment 1 Cristian Gafton 1999-09-20 15:27:59 UTC
Lilo needs to read the boot sector from the dos partition being listed
as a possible boot target. This is an installer problem and it will be
fixed in the next release.
