Actually, that is exactly what I did.  I tried using boot=/dev/hda1 once
or twice, but most of the time I was trying to set boot=/dev/hdb1.

To make it unambiguously clear, boot=/dev/hda in my lilo.conf, and it
run's happily.

To Mr, Blackley,  I will sit and stew on this for a while.  I'll
probably re-read the lilo manual's account of boot loading a couple
times.  Tomorrow.
