I took a look at it, and it indeed assumes that if you want to boot off linux
partition, then you want it to be /. You may want to submit a bug against
lilo. Your only option is to edit /etc/lilo.conf and make it something like
Then you should run lilo and reboot
Note that this will install lilo into MBR. If you don't want to do that, and
want to leave the debian mbr block in there (the thing that produces 123FA at
times), you can take a look at /usr/sbin/liloconfig (perl script) and see the
weird ways it handles it :-). Also, see /usr/doc/mbr. However, I don't see a
reason debian does this anyway, I was once told that the reason is because mbr
is safer than lilo.
