Re: lilo 21.6-2 default less compatible

Suppose that it was due to compact, as you know compact is not that
compatible, but I cannot tell for sure, as it was  taking me a lot of time
to boot from a potato rescue floppy wich was giving a lot of errors on the
woody machine, I finally added lba32 and compact at the same time, and it
worked ok, I cannot try them one by one now as I don't have phisical access
to the machine in case it breaks.

BTW, the machine is quite old, pre98 almost sure, P100 on a Triton FX mobo.

Well, I was just comenting the stuff for the defaults, I mean, if a newcomer
comes in, installs the new lilo with default values and then it doesn't boot
up... what will he do?
