I am confusedi by your comment.  (I know you know better but it does not
make sense to me.)

I did not remount.  So root FS is still ext2 until reboot.  Besides,
file location of all files (kernel image, initrd image is stationally)

I thought lilo care only physical location.  That is the reason behind
why it can put kernel image in DOS partition.

I did install kernel-image before editing fstab.  Is not it enough?
I greped source of lilo and I only see "fstab" in configuration scripts
(liloconfig, lilo_find_mbr) which are not used and will not be affected
by my fstab edit.

I am sorry to bug you :-(  (I think my system is working fine by the
process I described.)
