Well I rather agree with the bug reports that state it should not
overwrite existing working configurations.

Also, it broke my configuration by pointing to these images:


That doesn't work, I have kernel-package configured to put them in

It spewed something to the screen which overwrote/corrupted debconf's slang
frontend. I think I caught it using script, it seems to be:

  Running /usr/sbin/liloconfig

  This program only reinstall LiLO with the already given options.
  You can reconfigure LiLO with the dpkg-reconfigure lilo or you can use
  the old configuration tool, which is now named oldliloconfig.
  Here we will run lilo, but now for security reasons we won't do it!
  Please verify lilo.conf by hand and send comments to russell@coker.com.au!
  Thanks, and sorry about the data loss ;)
  Here we will dd the mbr.b to /dev/sda.

Finally, all the debconf questions are written in pretty bad English.
