Linux tip, Fedora tip / howto: Fixing the LIL- LILO error
Fixing the LIL- LILO error(there's also a tip about the LIL LILO error)

This involves writing the LILO boot sector to a file (now the line in lilo.conf reads boot=/dev/hda1) using:
The whole point is that you have to redo the above step after you have changed anything that forced you to rerun LILO (like, in my case, adding another kernel image), otherwise you'll get the LIL- error when trying to boot into Linux.
