And goes further on and says that lilo is mounted on the FLOPPY!
It got me to the GNU GRUB site where GNU is writing a whole new boot
loader that isn't effected by the bios work around now used for large hard
drives. The ftp site where the experimental GNU GRUB is full as I write
this (they only allow 10 users). But it's Experimental.
In general, it looks like GNU is late with it's new loader, lilo
is dead for future use, and the only rational fix is boot from a floppy.
