Description of problem:
If you use the text mode install, you are given the choice of using LILO instead
of GRUB. (My preference.) If you do this, it will still use GRUB as the boot
loader, but it will not boot because GRUB is not configured correctly. Stops
booting with a cryptic error message.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install using text mode
2. Select LILO as the boot loader.
3. Finish the install and watch the reboot fail.
Actual Results: I get a weird GRUB error message on reboot. (Error 13 or
Expected Results: It should have used LILO as the boot loader.
The graphical install does not give you a choice for using GRUB or LILO. I
prefer LILO. It works. I am used to it. GRUB instalation and usage is very
non-intuative for me. (I have been using Linux since the Yugdrasil beta.)
Fixed in CVS
