  I am not installing Ubuntu - it's already installed on hda3. I say
again I want to install another Linux on hda3 which uses Lilo...not
Grub. I'm asking whether Lilo will screw up Grub. I don't know whether
the install will give me the option to skip installing Lilo. If it does
there is no problem...but if it doesn't will there be a problem.
