Description ldunaway 1999-11-18 21:37:21 UTC
When I added append="mem=130495K" (which worked in my 6.0) to lilo.conf; it
was ignored.

I tried it on the lilo boot prompt and got "invalid number"

What's up??????????????

ps: 128M fails the same way

This patch adds some additional error messaging to inform the user
why these fields were necessary.
