hdb1, the /etc/lilo.conf was still bad even after changing the label from
"Red Hat Linux" to "Linux" so that lilo could handle it. The problem
seemed to be that it wanted to make a boot entry fro hdb1 but with no label
at all. Formally, having no label removed that entry.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. have two prepartitioned disks with vfat partitions as the first ones.
2. do an install with lilo as the boot loader and fixing the label
Do you still have (or can you get another of) the lilo.conf before and after

In previous versions, a partition without a label did NOT create an entry in
