In the next version there is a debconf option for whether you want to 
overwrite an existing lilo.conf file with a generated file.
Also I have added a "-f" option to liloconfig to force the creation of a new 
file, so you could create a new file when you want with "liloconfig -f", also 
I've made liloconfig take a parameter of the file to create, so you could do 
"liloconfig /tmp/lilo.conf" to see what it suggests (and then do what you 
like with the output).
