lilo problems (Re: boot floppies 2.2.7 available for testing)

Same box as before (netfinity 5500 m10).

After reboot, lilo reports LIL.  I selected yes to the install mbr on
/dev/sda via lilo.  No errors were shown.  Checked the lilo.conf after
reboot with a rescue floppy to find the line "image=vmlinuz".  This needs
to be "image=/vmlinuz".  I'm pretty sure this was the error (caused lilo
to exit with an error), but I haven't had a chance to reboot the box.  I
believe the LIL came from the last linux install.
