Had you made your lilo.conf immuatable with chattr +i
Comment 3 Need Real Name 2002-01-15 16:03:39 EST
yes, in fact, /etc/lilo.conf does have the immutable bit set. I noticed that 
myself this p.m.  Probably also explains why the 2.4.7 kernel info doesn't 
appear in the lilo.conf file. Thanks for your help!
