My /etc/lilo.conf is:
# Specifies the boot device. This is where Lilo installs its boot
# block. It can be either a partition, or the raw device, in which
# case it installs in the MBR, and will overwrite the current MBR.
# Specifies the device that should be mounted as root. (`/')
# Installs the specified file as the new boot sector
# Specifies the location of the map file
