    If you are literally using spaces, don't. Spaces appear to distinguish
    between different options sets. Try this, it works for me:


    You can put it at the begining of lilo.conf to have it affect all kernels
    in the file or after the "image=XXXX" statement to affect particular
    kernels that you might care to boot.

    If you need multiple options say For example, to tell a device where it
    is to find an IO port of an adapter (say a 1542 scsi fer instance) try

    append="mem=128M aha1542=0x230,15,2,5"

    Note that the blank distinguishes between the different options. I use
    this to set my memory size and tell the 1542 driver where the card is etc.
