That's correct.

This needs to go in the FAQ.

Another idea I had some time ago was in order to make it even more explicit
to users, the config option should be changed to a multi-choice, i.e.

Bootloader type (MILO, SRM) [SRM]?

(Feel free to suggest something better and I might get around to sending it
to Linus.)
