Re: Default LILO config -- prompt and timeout

I think we should change the default LILO config to prompt the

This can be done by adding:
to the default /etc/lilo.conf. Is the boot floppies package the right
place for this? Making the user hit shift for a LILO prompt is oogy.
I agree with the `prompt' part, but 7 seconds is IMO too long. 2
seconds is more reasonable IMO and is the current value IIRC.
