Datails on issue at:


There appears to be a bug in the install procedure which results in the
"boot=" line of /etc/lilo.conf identifying the wrong device.

Unfortunately, there is no way with x86 hardware to actually determine what the
BIOS boot order is.  The next release of Red Hat Linux adds the ability to
change your boot device ordering during boot loader configuration
