Bug#96906: Same problem here
I just wanted to install woody on 2 machines here, and on both the same thing
happened... I guess lilo would be installed with the potato boot disks I was
using before, but with the latest woody boot disks, it doesn't download and
install the lilo Debian-package.
You can find the bootdisks at
on just about any Debian FTP-mirror; I was using ftp.de.debian.org...
(and that bootdisk doesn't even come with a base2_2.tgz; it's getting it's
Debian packages via apt - and it will install just about anything, but not
LILO... maybe this bug should be filed against debootstrap also, as I think
that's the package failing to install lilo...)
