Description dlee 1999-11-19 04:43:16 UTC
When installing 6.1, the user has the opportunity to change the LILO boot
default from linux to dos.  This selection is ignored.  I've done it three
times now, and the installer always sets linux as the default.  The
workaround it is to edit /etc/lilo.conf and run /sbin/lilo -v.  But the
installer should honor the user's request.
