I need complete documentation on LILO with emphasis on lilo.conf .

What *ONE* document will answer ALL my LILO questions.

I don't know about "one" document, but there's the user documentation

In my "three score and ten" I've learned to recognize when I am too clueless to ask a reasonable question ;/

I can't get the menu to display automatically - even if at the moment it would have only one choice. [It does display if I hit the space-bar when LILO appears on screen.]

I can't the text describing the one menu item I have.

I suspect the document I desire would spend a dozen pages describing only lilo.conf.
