Although the documentation found in Lilo's sources (the one installed in
/usr/doc/lilo-version) is very comprehensive, most Linux users experience some trouble in building their own
/etc/lilo.conf file. This document is meant to support them by giving the minimal information and by showing five sample installations:
/dev/hdcthat will boot as
/dev/hda. This is usually needed when you install a new Linux drive from your own running system. This also tells how to boot from SCSI disks when your BIOS is modern enough.
The last three examples are by Cameron,
