hmm well there are two problems:
* the non-obvious select list ist dealt below

  more logical for selects, because there is no 
  hint on how to select.

well but succesfull lilo install could again reset debconf to higher.
sorry for getting in details for whom i don't know the consequences,
reformulate wishlist (hope it makes it clearer):
* get an easy prompt to select lilo without having to change debconf

thanks a lot for the quick response.
