Package: installation-reports
Severity: normal

When I try to disable lilo with the following commands (tried them all):

lilo-installer lilo-installer/skip boolean true
unknown lilo-installer/skip boolean true
d-i lilo-installer/skip boolean true

Then the installer still prompts for the installtion for lilo....
This is the command for that dialog:

Name: lilo-installer/bootdev
Type: select
Choices: ${disc}: Master Boot Record, ${part}: new Debian partition, Other
choice (Advanced)
Description: LILO installation target:
Extended_description: The LILO program needs to be installed to make your new
system bootable. By installing it onto your disk's Master Boot Record, LILO
will take complete control of the boot process, but if you want to use a
different boot manager, just install LILO on the new Debian partition
instead.\n\nIf unsure, install LILO into the Master Boot Record.
