Thanks for the idea, but I don't want a real-time snapshot.
Anyways, can lilo be used to setup a boot loader on /dev/hdb so that if
you physically move it to /dev/hda and boot it will boot successfully?
Again, it seems like the bios= option is not relevant, because it really
will be /dev/hda.
What is the most appropriate mailing list for lilo discussion?
Can grub do what I want?
