I have a new version online at http://www.coker.com.au/lilo/ .  It adds 
/boot/vmlinuz-* automatically and doesn't look for anything in the root 
directory.  Please try it out and let me know what you think.

Also currently if you don't have debconf configured to display "high" 
priority messages then the configure phase of installation won't run.  The 
problem line is:
db_text high lilo/createdit

I believe that this line should be critical priority anyway so this problem 
should go away.  But what do I do when I want to display text at a 
non-critical level?  Is this a bug in debconf or am I misusing it?
