SubjectRe: did 2.4 messed up lilo?

I've now installed 21.6 downloaded from metlab
and all seems to be ok now... well at
least the dell box.. compaq boot sector may
have been blown off for some reason..it won't
boot at all athough this time it's a different
way of being stuck like LI instead of LILO.
I will try ibm box in the morning when the traffic
is light.
