What happens if instead of the above, you run

chroot /mnt /sbin/lilo


My understanding is that this will treat /mnt as / in all ways,
including using /mnt/etc/lilo.conf for the configuration.

Unless you need to share ultra-sensitive super-spy stuff with me, please
don't email me directly.  I will most likely see your post before I read
your mail, anyway.
