  It's been a while since I installed my Debian system, but I only remember it
asking whether LILO should go on the MBR -- it didn't explain what it was doing
in the non-MBR case (I assumed it just flagged the LILO partition as bootable
and let the DOS MBR handle it, which sounds dumb now, but there you are :) )

Unhappiness remembering happiness.
