Description Stuart Blake Tener 1999-10-28 09:26:38 UTC
After doing a complete install of 6.1 including allowing the
install script to format the partition to have 6.1 loaded on
at the end of the installation it did not, or incorrectly
(I dont know which) failed to install lilo, if I choose
to not create a boot disk.

If I choose to create the boot disk, lilo installed fine.

Good luck,

What happened after you rebooted in the cases where you say lilo did not install
correctly?  We have not seen this happening in the lab, no matter whether we
created boot disks or not, lilo has been getting installed correctly.

What was happening was I was getting things like "lil" and such on the screen.
Not to long after I had decided to just go ahead do a fresh install, I learned
that the "lil" (less the "o") was telling me something about how lilo was not
functioning properly (I dont remember whether it was was "li" or "lil" or what
I got before), but that was what happened.

Sorry I did not comment sooner, but I do appreciate your help.
