RE: LILO Problem

The prompts you are referring to aren't LILO prompts. When you run   
LILO isn't installed as the master boot loader on your system another   
is (I can't recall the name of the program that is used, but look thru   
liloconfig script for details and then look into the appropriate /usr/doc
subdirectory for boot manager configuration options.)

Alternatively, skip liloconfig and create your own lilo.conf file that   
lilo as master boot loader. You have a lot more options available and a   
more features as well (lilo can load a boot sector from a logical   
partition or load
the kernel directly from a logical partition for example, the boot   
manager used with
bo can only load boot sectors from primary partitions.)
